Well done to all those who fenced for the assassins this weekend- excellent results for Oxford, boding well for the rest of the season. Special mentions must go to Becky Martin and Maddi Pearce, who accompanied the team and showed great support throughout the day and to Francine Robb, who continues to show encouragement and enthusiasm for OUFC, whilst being the Leicester coach. Also, to Rosa Chrystie- Lowe who travelled to Leicester at short notice to join the team.

All the best,
