Three young adult boxers from New Saints Boxing Club in St Neots have qualified as England Boxing Level 1 coaches.

Danny Bennett, 18, Mackenzie Lafferty,19, and Leon Isaacs, 20, recently passed their Level 1 coaching course, which allows them to be involved in coaching competitive amateur boxing within an England Boxing-affiliated club.

The trio can now step up to take on the responsibility of sharing their knowledge and experience with junior members alongside training to compete.

New Saints Boxing Club's chairman and trainer, Kev Bullus, said: "Having watched them all come through the gym over the last seven years, I'm immensely proud and pleased to see them giving back and future-proofing the New Saints club."
