Newbiggin Boxing Club had their annual presentation night at the Shakespeare recently.
There was a good turnout to support the young boxers presented with awards.
Top schoolboy award went to William Spalding, best senior was Jon Graham, while the best junior and best Newbiggin boxer could not be split, so the awards were given jointly to Courtney Scott and Alex Brown.
Both Scott and Brown won national schools championships, were gold medalists at the Hull Boxing Cup, and Scott won the British title in the Three Nations when she represented England and beat the unbeaten Welsh champion. Brown represented England against Ireland and won convincingly.
The boxers’ boxer award, chosen by the team, was given to Scott.
As the new season approaches, the club is looking for sponsors and fundraising opportunities to support the ever increasing costs that running the successful club attracts.
Newbiggin Boxing Club thanked all those that have continued to support the club and the boxers and it looks forward to the support continuing.
