|Northwest Age Banded Open- 25 & 26/02/06|
Day 1- Saturday 25th February 2006
It was clear straight away that this was going be a tough competition. People had travelled from all over the country to attend. The hall was cold and remained that way all day. Despite this everyone gave it their best.
Richard Jarvis, Steve Cross and Matt Fazakerley came to give their support and to weigh in for next day’s competition. Their first port of call was, of course, the café for bacon butties.
First up was Harley Somerville and Peter Oldrid. This was Harley’s first competition away from home. He didn’t win his 2 fights but had 2 very experienced opponents. Peter won 1 and lost 2 but was pleased with his performance. Both lads got a photo for their trouble.
Clements was up next and unusually looked very small against his opponents.
He won 2 and lost 2.
