BRIDLINGTON’S youngest boxers outshone their older team-mates at the Spa on Friday night.

At another excellent show arranged by Bridlington ABC, local lads took the honours in the first four scored bouts.

But things went downhill after that, with Bridlington members failing to record another win in the remaining eight contests they were involved in.

After newcomer Kirk Crimlisk had impressed in a skills bout, Billy Gibson put in a whirlwind performance on his debut to, not only win his fight, but also the title of Home Boxer of the Night.

Lewis Spaven, Kier Herrgesell and Zac Stabler also got the nod from the judges but after that, it was the visiting fighters who starred.

Bridlington head coach Damien Grant said: “I felt the quality of boxing was spot on and every one of our boxers perfomed really well.

“Some of the lads had really tough opponents and showed great determination and a lot of talent in the ring.

“For a few of the boxers it was their first contest and they peformed really well and it was a good start to their boxing careers.”
