REPTON will take boxing back to school for their first tournament of the new season - a Saturday afternoon open competition at the Bethnal Green Technology College on September 27.

Repton are taking a step into the unknown by staging the show at the east London school, formerly known as Daneford, which has a long tradition of sporting success.

The move continues a trend that has seen amateur boxing return to schools in recent years, with youngsters who are interested in the sport enjoying an introduction to boxing via non-combat classes.

Such nursery schemes have produced some of the many junior hopefuls currently showing promise at the Bethnal Green club's headquarters.

"With so many young prospects at the club we came up with the idea to feature as many as possible on our first tournament of the season," said Repton official Kelvin Wing.

"We consider Daneford an ideal venue and we can attract a good crowd for the Saturday afternoon show."

Repton produced three national champions at last year's Junior ABA finals, with Martin Ward, Lerrone Richards (pictured) and Brett Beadon all scooping titles.

The Bethnal Green club, dubbed the Home of Champions, also produced five NACYP title winners and four Golden Gloves schoolboy champions.
