Medal haul for box­ers

Wishaw Press - - SCHOOL NEWS -

Two Cle­land ABC box­ers brought back medals from the Elite GB Tri Na­tions tour­na­ment.

Scott Wother­spoon and Stephanie Ker­nachan both headed down to Sh­effield to com­pete in the semi-fi­nals.

Scott fought English num­ber one Con­nor Kel­sall in the light fly­weight 49kg cat­e­gory and lost on a unan­i­mous de­ci­sion.

Stephanie then boxed Nina Hughes in the ban­tamweight 54kg cat­e­gory. She lost the first round but won the sec­ond and third and was an­nounced the win­ner by the com­pere, only to be called back into the ring to dis­cover she had lost 3-2 on a split de­ci­sion.

Coach Ron­nie Black­burn said:“This was a great achieve­ment by both Scot­tish cham­pi­ons, who picked up bronze medals.”

Cle­land fin­ished the sea­son on a win­ning note with a tre­ble win at the Cam­bus­nethan home show. Ryan McCabe, Mark Mc­Don­ald and Martin Stu­art McRae all came out on top. Ron­nie added:“Well done to all our box­ers for a fan­tas­tic end to the sea­son The club’s coaches are proud of them all.”
