A pupil from Saint Blane’s Primary School has got the boxing season off to a “punchy start!”
Blantyre’s Jacob Naismith (11), who boxes for O’Neils ABC has had a marvellous, successful year so far. Already in 2020, over five weekends worth of contests, he has managed to win the Scottish intermediates at 35.5kg which took place at the Boxing Scotland High Performance Centre. He’s also won the Western District Championships at 35.5kg at the Firhill Sports Complex and now, in recent days, the Scottish Schoolboy Championships at Ravenscraig Sports Facility!
Over 5 weekends he has boxed in 5 contests against various opponents winning the gold medal in all 3 major competitions.
Well done Jacob. It’s amazing to see young people in Blantyre doing so well out in the big world. Your parents, we know are exceptionally proud.
