City club win 12 Bri­tish ti­tles

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - SPORT -

CITY fight­ers were well to the fore at the BCKA Na­tional Cham­pi­onships at Lodge Park in Corby at the week­end.

The Peter­bor­ough BCKA club came away with an im­pres­sive 12 Bri­tish ti­tles, six sec­ond places and three third places.

No won­der chief in­struc­tor Andy Whitwell couldn’t stop smil­ing.

“I was walk­ing around with a smile on my face all day,” he said. “It was a su­perb dis­play by the Peter­bor­ough fight­ers who were com­pet­ing against many Euro­pean and world cham­pi­ons and I was so proud of all of them. Re­sults like that make all the hard work seem worth­while. Twelve Bri­tish cham­pi­ons from my club is an amaz­ing re­sult.

“While they all did me proud I was par­tic­u­larly im­pressed with Char­lotte Cameron in the con­tin­u­ous sec­tion and Ed­ward Pad­dock. I pre­dict they will go on to be­come big play­ers on the world stage in time.”
