Lennon play­ing win tune

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today - BY JAMES MASSON

LOCHEE ABC coach Jerry Howett is ex­pect­ing big things from sev­eral of the club’s box­ers in the com­ing sea­son.

Among them is for­mer Scot­tish champ Lennon Mitchell (above).

Lennon won a Scot­tish youth ti­tle last year and is this year’s North­ern District champ at his age and weight.

He’s 16 so is in his last year as a youth boxer.

“I am re­ally happy with his progress,” said Jerry.

“He’s done bril­liantly. He has a great at­ti­tude and trains very hard.

“Lennon is keen, ded­i­cated and very com­mit­ted and has been since he came to us five sea­sons ago.

“We en­sure he gets good spar­ring and that helps him.”

Bren­dan and Lo­gan Howett and John Reilly are among the oth­ers Jerry feels can take a big step for­ward.

“We also have some younger lads who are com­ing through so it’s look­ing ex­tremely good for the fu­ture,” he went on.
