Lennon playing win tune
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.
