BOXING brothers Simon and Mark Baker bid for glory in a group of seven Repton club hopes who have made their way into the ABA Golden Gloves national finals at Knottingley Leisure Centre, West Yorkshire, this weekend.

The Bethnal Green club hopes take on the best of the rest in the country boosted by their impressive displays in the recent semi-final tournament at the Connaught Centre Centre Aldershot, when the club recorded a day of unrivalled success in the Royal Navy-sponsored schoolboys event.

Simon Baker came through his semi-final test with a good win over Hastings rival Henry Woodham-Ball, scoring with solid shots in every round to take the verdict.

Brother Mark overcame Mike Casey from the Keystone club, boxing well to make sure of his place in the final.

Danny Arnold was another good winner for Repton slamming home the solid shots in the opening round against Sporting Ring BC rival Kingsley Stambridge.

Romeo Wallace also left little doubt about his superiority over Faversham, Kent rival Michael Kelly to make sure of his national final spot.

His Repton clubmate John Lee King was another good winner at Aldershot where he subdued the attacks of Portland club entry George Proctor.

Luke Keller maintained his winning run in the Golden Gloves competition with Jake Heal, a game opponent from Gloucestershire's Synwell boxing club, his latest victim.

The clash between Repton's Perry Lovejoy and St Mary's rival Bernie Saunders proved one of the closest clashes in the Aldershot tournament. After three tightly contest rounds the judges decided that the Repton boxer's more effective attacks had won the day.

The semi finals at Aldershot proved the end of the Golden Gloves title trail for Repton hope Tommy Carr, who was eliminated after a tough bout with Ryan Martin from Swindon's Walcot BC.
