Nick Payne and Adrian Speakman Selected by FIE to Referee at Senior Events
Congratulations to Nick Payne and Adrian Speakman who have both been selected to referee at senior international events this season.
Payne will referee foil at both the Turin Foil Grand Prix (2-4 December 2016) and Paris Foil World Cup (20-22 January 2017). Speakman will attend the Berne Epee World Cup (28-30 October 2016) and the Barcelona Epee World Cup (20-22 January 2017).
Speaking about his selection, Nick Payne said; “I am really happy to be back on the GP list and look forward to the Women’s Foil Grand Prix in Turin and Men’s Foil World Cup in Paris in January. I am also keen to help the next tranche of British referees (and associate referees) to achieve the FIE qualification level. Thanks to Georgina Usher, Hilary Philbin and British Fencing for their part in getting British referees back to the top table of worldwide referees.”
British Fencing would also like to congratulate the referees selected to attend Cadet and Junior international events this season and wish them luck on their journey to FIE licences. Those referees will be announced at the same time as the fencers selected to represent Great Britain.
