Congratulations to Jodi Desmond and the Northern Ireland cadet and junior fencing teams, who took part and  qualified for the Junior Commonwealth Games held in Newcastle in July 2018.

Jodi who was sponsored by Partridge Peartree was taking part in only her second tournament and made a very good account of herself and managed to secure the most points for Northern Ireland in the team event.

The experience gained at the games will prove invaluable to Jodi, and hopefully we will hear more from her fencing exploits in the near future.
