Boxing clever – meet the lords of the ring!

YOUNG fighters from Auchengeich Amateur Boxing Club have enjoyed a successful few months of medal-winning form.

The club’s glory run started in October last year when four of the youngsters coached by Joe Martin landed gold in the Scottish Novice Championships held in Motherwell. Kieran Tarleton (14), Mark Brown (14), Johnny Fitzsimmons (11) and Dylan Lewis (13) all emerged from the ring as champions.

In December fight fans packed into the hall at the Knights of St Columba, in Moodiesburn, to cheer on local boxers as they took on the West Ham Boys Club in a contest billed as ‘The Battle of the Little Big Men’.

It was then back to Motherwell in January for the Scottish Intermediate Championships.

There was yet more success for Auchengeich, with Taylor McGregor, (13), Mark Brown (14) and Jason Fagan (13) taking gold and Paul Duncan (13) landing silver.
