Acacia gets England call-up
ACACIA Barron has been celebrating after she was selected to represent England at the EUBC European Schools Boxing Championships.
Acacia has been rewarded for her impressive performances inside the ring over the past few months, and she is just one of three girls who have been chosen to represent England at the event in Bulgaria in May.
She trains at the People’s Gym in Heywood with coaches Kieran Farrell and Nathan Farrell, and she has also been honing her skills by training alongside England and Great Britain coaches over the past six months.
Kieran Farrell said: “The club is delighted Acacia has been selected for the European competition. We are all very proud of her and this is just the start of big things in the future.”
Acacia has already had plenty of success in her boxing career already, having won the National Schoolgirl Championships back in May 2017.
