Three Dundee boxers have progressed in the Scottish National championships.
Myles McGhee (Lochee), McKinley Lornie (St Francis) and Harris Chohan (Dundee University) were competing at Ravenscraig.
Myles is through to the next stage of the Elite 71kg category after he recorded a split-decision points win over Fraser Knowles (Edinburgh Lochend).
McKinley, boxing at Youth 63.5kg, received a bye into the next round.
Harris (Dundee University) won on a split decision at Youth 75kg against Lochee’s Dean Powles.
Meanwhile, Lochee’s Commonwealth Games gold medallist Sam Hickey has been in Kazakhstan at a training camp with the rest of the Great Britain Olympic squad.
Sam recently won a bronze medal in the light-heavyweight section of the Bocskai tournament in Hungary.
It’s congratulations to Dundee University who have retained their DABA Mixed League Division 1 title for the fourth-consecutive season. They finished their season with a fixture against Roseangle who have run them close in the past, but they were too strong for Rossie and clinched the title in style with an 8-0 win.
In Division 2, Dundee University 3 got revenge on their fourth team club-mates with a 6-3 win despite being a player short.
It was a similar tale for St Andrews University who triumphed 5-3 in the varsity derby with Abertay University despite being a player short.
In the Gents League Division 2, it’s between reigning champions Kirriemuir and Nomads for the title and both had good wins.
Leaders Kirrie had a 5-1 win v Roseangle. Graeme Russo and Tom Callendar had three wins each for the victors. Nomads, however, still have a 100% record and two matches in hand and maintained that record with an excellent 4-0 win v Carnoustie. Youngster Luca Iannetta was the star player for Nomads.
In the Gents League Division 2, there was a big local derby, which promised to be a close affair until Monifieth Grove’s Brian Flynn picked up an injury in the second rubber of the first game. The teams were level after the first round of games, but having to concede a further two games made it too tough for Monifieth Grove and leaders David Lloyd triumphed 4-1.
