Club members and friends of Falmouth and Penryn amateur boxing club enjoyed a successful awards evening at St Gluivas cricket club in Penryn on Saturday, May 28.

The awards evening was the first time the club has been able to hold such an event in over three years and followed on from the great success at the club’s show in April.

There were ten awards handed out that celebrated the boxer’s remarkable efforts over a challenging season.

In the junior category, the award of most promising boxer was shared by Jake Shimmen and Sid Wolff.

The most improved junior went to Tom Perkins after his great performance on the April home show.

Harry Morris took the awards for best junior boxer and the best junior bout of the season following his three brilliant performances for the club which culminated in his dominating appearance in April.

For the first time, the club celebrated best female boxer, the award going to Lauren Partridge who made her debut on the home show and is showing great potential.

Youth boxer of the year was awarded to Dan Lea who has shown great development in three tough contests over the season.

In the seniors, Ben Ambrose took the award for the best performance on the Falmouth and Penryn ABC home show, where he outpointed a classy opponent in an exciting contest.

The most improved senior was given to Ben Perry who got himself into fantastic shape to completely outbox his opponent at the home show.

Kaidan Symons took home the award of best senior boxer following his success over the season which include claiming gold in the Riviera Boxcup.

Symons shared the best senior award with Callum Nancholas who was also awarded the best senior bout of the season award, after his dominating victory over a far more experienced Cornish rival boxer on the St Ives show last October.

Commenting on the season, club coach Chris Martin said, “we have been delighted with the boxers this year, they have all excelled themselves. The coaches were over the moon with their performances on the home show”.
