Bray People - - SPORT -

ARK­LOW box­ers are on a sum­mer break hav­ing won 14 ti­tles last sea­son. But that doesn’t tell the com­plete story.

Both Am­ber Byrne and Te­gan Far­rell have re­cently won Ir­ish ti­tles while Daniel Feokry­tov, Sean Crow­ley, Paddy McKen­zie, Natalie Byrne, Am­ber Byrne, Te­gan Far­rell, Leanne Doyle,and Shan­non Just all won Le­in­ster ti­tles.

Paddy, Sean, Shan­non, and Leanne also reached the Ir­ish fi­nals where three of them lost on split de­ci­sions which would have given the club a record num­ber of Ir­ish ti­tles.

Next sea­son, which starts on first week in Septem­ber, the club will have some of their un­der­age box­ers com­ing of age and will con­test the Le­in­ster cham­pi­onships.

The club will have their fun day and pre­sen­ta­tions on Fri­day night, June 24, when all club mem­bers are in­vited to the club at 6pm to have fun on the bouncy cas­tle and lots of games to be played.

The club are hop­ing to run a sum­mer camp in Au­gust and de­tails will be no­ti­fied later.

Mean­while a group of ladies led by club sec­re­tary Linda Mor­gan ran in Mon­day’s Women’s Mini Marathon in Dublin to raise much needed funds for the club.

Leanne Doyle, Ir­ish sil­ver medalist, Am­ber Byrne, Ir­ish Na­tional cham­pion, and Te­gan Far­rell, Ir­ish Na­tional cham­pion.
