Thomas Lindley, one of Coach Stuart Marshall’s Junior Sabre Fencers has set off from Heathrow Airport along with British Fencing Coaches and British Fencing Team Staff for 10 days of intense Fencing training at Szombathely, Hungary.

The trip is organised with British Fencing as part of the AASE program Thomas is currently completing.

The AASE program is an Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence and is run through the Colleges and British Fencing.  On satisfactory completion, Thomas will gain a recognised qualification in line with an A level.

On return from Hungary, Thomas will get 3 days rest before jetting off again, this time from Gatwick Airport to Tenerife for 14 days! Again this is part of the AASE program.

Tom will fly out with the South Gloucestershire and Stroud (SGS)  College and British Fencing Staff for 14 days of training with fencing and physical activities, altitude running, gym work and surfing.  They will be coaching local Spanish School Children, aged from 4 to 12 years of age and fencing with the local Spanish Fencers.  The program funded by the European Commission will give the Fencers taking part valuable  international work experience. All the fencers will be expected to  complete a certain amount of classroom based studies, including learning Spanish, for which they receive on satisfactory completion; an accredited qualification.

The AASE program is open to Fencing  Students age 16 and over who have completed satisfactory GCSEs and are going on to further education. It can be either taken as a full time college course or alongside existing college courses being taken, full details are available on the British Fencing Web Site.


On Friday 11th July Stuart Marshall won the Oldham Sport coach of the year award 2014. This was in recognition of the endless work in primary schools, secondary schools and  colleges Stuart has put in.  He has also been working with children with disabilities ,and helping to tutor the local sports development team, so they can teach GOFENCE in schools. Not least, he has set up Marshall Fencing club in Oldham.

Before Marshall Fencing  moved to Oldham in October 2013, there was no fencing presence in the borough. Now after only a few months Stuart Marshall and his team of coaches have made fencing a fun, accessible sport for all ages and abilities, and it has a foothold in the sporting development of children in Oldham.

Marshall Fencing Club is growing rapidly with the help of coaches Michael Swiffin, David Taylor and  Kian Ryan; all of whom have  put a lot of effort into the development of young people in  schools in Oldham and the surrounding areas.

Stuart on receiving this award said 'receiving this award took me by surprise, there are so many hard working coaches in Oldham aiming to deliver sports at a high level.  I have only been coaching  in Oldham for just a few months, and am so pleased that the judging panel have been very impressed with work I have done in such a short space of time. When asking who had put me forward for the award, I found out that it was the Oldham Sports Partnership and development team,  so I was over the moon.'

Stuart will continue to grow the sport of fencing by working closely with local partnerships, and utilising the knowledge and expertise of local homegrown coaches.

Stuart will now be shortlisted for Greater Manchester Sports coach of the year.

There were some notable achievements at the recent BYC Championships for some of the younger fencers from the Region.
