    Congratulations to Adrian "Spud" Murphy, who yesterday received Life Membership of Fencing SA. 

    Adrian started fencing in 1989 at the Adelaide Amateur Fencing Club (now Adelaide Swords Club, of which he is also a Life Member), and over the years has been a competitive fencer representing South Australia on many occasions and a stalwart of the State Team.

    He participated as a volunteer at the Sydney 2000 Olympics in the role of Equipment Controller, and is always available to assist at the Robyn Chaplin. 

    in 2012 the "Adrian Murphy Cup" was first awarded to the winners of the Junior Division in the Schools League, named in his honour for the countless hours coaching and mentoring young fencers at both ASC and at Fencing SA events,

    Adrian received his Life Membership on 27 February at the 2021 Presentation Awards, and was inducted by fellow Life Member Leon Thomas (who was also Adrian's first coach). Infamous for his threat of "50 push ups", he is now also the proud owner of a tshirt with his motto!
