Men's epee teams finished the competition with the team going in ranked 5th, and after going down to Scotland 45/35 finished 5th in the competition.
Well done to all of the fencers on their results and hopefully it is not too cold on the journey out of Jersey.
The next Commonwealth Juniors Championships will be in three years time, so the time to start training is now.
