Goalkeeping coach shines on big boxing debut

Holmfirth Town Juniors goalkeeping coach, Rylee Weatherhead, has made a successful county debut for Yorkshire, boxing the champion of Derbyshire.

Travelling to Derbyshire with his Rawthorpe Amateur Boxing Club coach, Terry Gammans, he boxed a very tall, rangy fighter who had the home crowd behind him.

Rylee had a great first round, forcing his opponent to take a count. He then dominated every round to take the win.

Now in the final year at Holmfirth High he will now concentrate on his studies and is planning a big 2020.

Well done Rylee!
