Young Barnstaple boxer will look to impress at weekend semi-final in Milton Keynes

Young Barnstaple boxer Troy Elworthy has made it through to the National Schools semi-finals in Milton Keynes on Sunday.

The 14-year-old will be hoping to progress in the under 56kg weight.

If he’s successful, he’ll join fellow young Barnstaple Boxing Club prospect Connor Woods in the finals in Grantham on June 4 – the day before the club’s annual end-of-season showcase in the pannier market.

The show on Sunday, June 5, starts at 2pm, with doors open at 1pm.

Tickets are £10 for adults and £5 for under-15s accompanied by an adult, available from the club, The Corner House pub, or from Mark on 07749 231121.
