YOUNG boxers from Skerton enjoyed success on a show in Cumbria on Friday.

Shaun Michael Varey aka The Heartbreak Kid made a winning debut against a taller and older opponent who had much more experience.

But Shaun Michael outpointed him to win in his first ever competitive bout, his non–stop action endearing him instantly to the Cumbrian crowd.

Also on the card was Benny “Buzzsaw” Ellsmore, who chopped down his fourth opponent on the bounce making his record a perfect four wins from four starts.

Saturday saw four of Skerton’s boxers in action at the North West Schoolboy Championships in Manchester.
