Gloves are off at Clay­mores spar­ring day

The Oban Times - - Sport -

MORE than 30 box­ers and their coaches from all over Scot­land trav­elled to Kin­lochleven re­cently for a day of spar­ring with Clay­mores box­ing club.

From ages 10 through to 40, male and fe­male ath­letes with vary­ing lev­els of ex­pe­ri­ence took the op­por­tu­nity on Au­gust 22 to test their skills against new op­po­nents.

Martin Gle­nesk, head coach with Clay­mores, said: ‘The stan­dard of spar­ring on show was first rate and ev­ery­one got a chance to spar a range of op­po­nents and learn some valu­able lessons ahead of the new sea­son. We had five of our own box­ers in the ring who have been train­ing hard all sum­mer. They all did me proud and I fully ex­pect them to bring back some medals from the Scot­tish Novice Cham­pi­onships in Oc­to­ber.’
