Busy weekend for Walcot
6:00am Saturday 26th October 2013 in Sport
WALCOT ABC face a busy weekend with four of their young stars in action at three different events.
The central Swindon gym’s top female boxer, Jordan O’Donoghue, starts the ball rolling with an appearance at the Barton Hill ABC event in Bristol on Friday evening.
The talented 15-year-old has won six of her eight bouts to date and will be looking to chalk up win number seven in Bristol.
On Saturday 11-year-old James Anderson and Joe Cuss, 14, both make their debuts at the Heart of Portsmouth Academy event in Portsmouth.
Both boxers have been training hard in the gym and are looking forward to their first contests.
On Sunday former England Schoolboy International Patrick McDonagh makes his seasonal debut in the Ambition Championships in Portsmouth.
The 16-year-old faces Alex Millar from the City of Portsmouth ABC in a class A, 63kg contest.
If the hard-hitting southpaw overcomes Millar he will meet the Welsh champion in the next round.
Clubmate Orges Peroshi receives a bye to the next round in the class A, 60kg section.
Ahead of a busy weekend Walcot chief coach Harry Scott said: “It’s great that four of our young boxers are competing this weekend.
“We hope they all box to their potential and do the club proud.”
