Lincoln Littler, 10, Prescot shone in the – 36kg category and was crowned a National Champion when he won gold.

12-year-old Emily Clark from Huyton fought well enough to earn herself a bronze medal in the female cadet -47kg category.

Emily’s brother, 11-year-old Dylan Clark, also attended the competition but unfortunately missed out on a medal after leaving the quarter final of his fight in the last few seconds.
