ATH­LET­ICS Rachel Ayr­ton,

17, and Eden Davis, 18, came away from Lee Val­ley with county in­door cham­pi­onship gold medals. Ayr­ton, who com­petes for Har­row AC, took the Mid­dle­sex U20 800m ti­tle in 2:34.96, while Herts Phoenix sprinter Davis tri­umphed in the Hert­ford­shire U20 60m in 7.05. Both ath­letes are also coaches for Mac­cabi Lon­don Har­ri­ers.

BOX­ING Tom Milch has seen his re­turn to the ring KO’d by in­jury. A dam­aged eardrum sus­tained in spar­ring has forced Milch to scrap a six-round bout at York Hall planned for April 8. It’s a blow for the Bushey bruiser, who last fought Novem­ber, but Milch says com­mon sense had to pre­vail. He said: “It’s frus­trat­ing but these things hap­pen in box­ing. There’s no point tak­ing a chance.”
