Repton are stepping up their 2010 title assault as they added two more London schoolboy champions at the weekend

Repton are stepping up their 2010 title assault as they added two more London schoolboy champions at the weekend.

The victories take their total to seven while more cockney Champions look certain with their 16 strong squad lining up for the London Boys club championships next week.

The boys clubs London Feds event gets underway tonight with the weigh in taking place at the Lion BC with the semi finals at York Hall on February 13 and the finals take place a week later.

The remaining London schoolboys finals were decided at the Five Star BC, Harold Hill on Saturday with Bethnal Green club duo Frank Baker and Danny Arnold stamping their class on the show by scoring impressive title wins.

Baker claimed the Class One 40kg title with his second points victory in seven days following his semi-final success the previous Sunday at York Hall.

Twickenham rival Al Shrubb battled well, but the Repton boxer dominated the action piling up the points in every round to take the judges' points verdict and the London title.

Arnold also gave a classy display and looks good for another successful campaign following his Class Three 48kg victory over Lynn's Pat McDonagh.

The Repton entry counter-punched accurately to open a comfortable points advantage over the south London hope.

McDonagh needed the respite of a standing count in the second round but survived until the final bell when Arnold took a deserved points verdict.

It was so nearly a title treble for the Bethnal Green club at the London finals when pint-sized entry Jack Fallon staged a battling comeback after dropping the opening round against Ray Singh (Bodyshots).

Another narrow verdict went against Repton's Karl Thomas in a supporting bout against Newham rival Geo Egorou on the Harold Hill show.

Repton's seven-strong squad of London champions now move into the in the quarter-finals of the national title race when they face the Eastern Counties winners.

The quarter-finals take place on Saturday at the Belhus Park BC South Ockendon, when the winners there will move through into the last four of the competition.
