The club also travelled to Liverpool last week to compete in the Chairman’s Cup which featured 47 clubs from England and Wales and Glenrothes representing Scotland.

The club returned with three gold medals and a shield after winning the Champion Club of the Tournament award. Effy defeated previously unbeaten Annel Massey on points, Emma beat Celtic Box Cup champion Nicole Ryan on points, while 16-year-old Bradley Innes in his 17th contest won gold at 66kgs.
