Seven of the 10 home fighters in action at the Eaton Socon club’s Little End Road base recorded wins.

Bill Davis and Ron Belkin maintained their 100 per-cent records by beating other unbeaten boxers, while Bobbie Stanley, Walter Smith, Alfie Smith, Gareth Macey and George Pyke also triumphed on points.

Senior boxers Jake Brading (a 24 year-old light middleweight) and Bailey Radford (a cruiserweight prospect aged 19) were both on the wrong end of close decisions when making encouraging New Saints debuts.
