REPTON launched their season in style when they chalked up a 4-2 success against a North East England lineup at Sunderland on Friday night in the opening team-match of the new campaign.

The Bethnal Green club were set on the way by welterweight prospect Joe Knighton, who played a key role in their triumph.

Knighton had strong rival Martin Robinson in the opposite corner but took control of the bout with solid shots and left the judges in no doubt that he deserved the points vote.

Highly promising Romeo Wallace did not need the help of the judges to chalk up his victory against Isaac McLeod, who was on the receiving end of some powerful attacks from the Repton youngster.

Wallace piled on the pressure from the opening bell with a barrage of solid shots and his opponent needed the respite of two counts from the referee before McLeod's cornermen sensibly threw in the towel.

Michael Channing provided a third win for Repton after subduing strong Lewis Sherriff with a series of effective punches to earn a points decision.

Luca Cutuipi also chalked up a win for the visiting squad by coming through against Sunderland rival Kyle Gangley.

Repton supporters thought that John Lee King had done enough to defeat rival Steve Pattison in their clash.

But despite flooring Pattison in the final round, King finished on the wrong end of a controversial points verdict.

Michael McCarthy also failed to produce his best form and dropped a close verdict to Callum Ellenor.

l Repton's junior prospects will be in action this week for the start of the new amateur boxing season as the national junior novice championships get underway on Saturday afternoon.

The North East London junior championships, which feature boxers with experience of 10 bouts or fewer, will be staged at the Five Star youth club headquarters in Harold Hill, Romford starting at 1pm.

Lucien Reed, George O'Mahoney, Josh Annell, Charlie Cook, Chris Ali, Connor Packman and Ollie Williams are the seven Repton boxers entered into the tournament, which will feature the championship contests and some additional supporting bouts.

The North East Division title winners will face the other divisional champions at the London ABA junior novice finals, which take place the following weekend at York Hall.
