ENGLAND amateur international Oscar Webb helped Repton to a 6-3 team win as he scored a points victory over Scotland choice Josh Taylor at the Prince Regent Hotel, Chigwell on Friday night.

Webb, who has represented England at flyweight, returned from a year out of action to take on Taylor, a Scotland international bantamweight, and took control of the bout with some accurate attacks in the opening session.

Taylor fought back well but Webb stayed in control to earn a majority verdict from the ringside judges.

Hard-hitting Frank Buglioni did not need the help of the judges to defeat Scott Morgan, who soaked up some solid shots before he was rescued by the referee in the fourth round of their duel.

Michael Norgrove was another winner in the colours of the Bethnal Green club, slamming home a series of attacks to clinch a second-round victory as his solid shots proved too much for James Nelson.

Repton's Lee Newman was unlucky to drop a points verdict against Scott Freeman while Nadar Sabbar was also outpointed by David Louden.

Ben Hall was one of a number of Repton juniors in winning form on the night as he came through a points winner against Kevin Skey in a lively tussle, while Lou Rose was a convincing winner against Sean White.

Danny Arnold also sparkled in Repton colours with a unanimous win over Connor McGregor.

l Seven Repton boxers brought back gold medals from the Hancock Box Cup tournament in Denmark with Leon Wallace and Matt Hedges boxing twice for their awards.

Brothers Callum and Ben Channing chalked up a family double with Andrew Doe, Brett Beadon and Simon Baker also bringing back golds.

Ben Hall, Jimmy Smith, Rai Willmott and Liam Quammie secured silver medals at the tournament.

l London's top amateur prospects will be in action at York Hall on Sunday as they bid for honours at the ABA novices finals.

Repton representatives at the finals include Michael Norgrove, Ray Shakuri, Gavin Curragh, Luca Cuprati, Theo Stilianides and Joe Knighton, who won their way through the North East London Divisional finals last month.

They will go head-to-head with winners of the qualifying bouts in three other London divisions.

Meanwhile the club's younger prospects head for Lymington, Hampshire for the semi- finals of the national junior novices tournament.

Lucien Reid, Chris Ali, George Mahoney and Connor Packman will carry Repton hopes when the London champions face Southern and Western Counties title winners.
