Fine season for young Yarcombe boxer...

HAVING retained the Western County Championship, Yarcombe’s Spencer Ayers (13) competed in the England Schoolboys Boxing Quarter final Nationals in Southampton last weekend.

Due to illness, and weighing in 1.5kg under his normal weight, he nearly pulled him out, but took on Danny Searle from Guildford, one of the best clubs in the Southern Counties, who edged the split decision.

Ayers has had a fine season with four wins to his name and is looking forward to competing in the Lords Lonsdale Box Cup at the end of the month.
