Thornhill Trojans ARLFC hosted their third charity boxing event in front of a packed crowd who witnessed nine terrific fights involving players from the club and some special guest fighters.
Monies raised will go to the club’s usual chosen charity Help for Heroes along with the Allan Wood Foundation, a charity set up to remember local legend Allan Wood and aimed at giving young sporting stars of Thornhill the help to achieve their goals.
The Soldiers Charity ABF will also benefit from the evening as they will from first team captain Danny Ratcliffe’s 100km trek which is organised for October this year.
The Trojans themselves will use some of the money raised to continue their successes on and off the field following on from a very successful 2016 season.
To date the club has raised over £5,000 for the charities.
The highlight was undoubtedly the contest between Trojans Ladies and Yorkshire RL prop forward Amy Ratcliffe and Stacey Swinson in what was a punishing contest, with Ratcliffe receiving the nod from the three ringside judges.
Other bouts saw Kez Overend stop Chris Mitchell, Joe Waters defeat Jordan Clayton, Dave Lumb account for Joshua Clough, Stuart Frost beat Mark Mitchell and Sam Ratcliffe see off a strong challenge from Joshua Manton.
Connor Spencer had too much power for Scott Lee, as did Liam Green in his fight with Scott Craven whilst Jordan Drummond had too much class for Jordan Goodwill.
All the fights were refereed by ex-Thornhill star and boxing champion Barry Drummond.
The Trojans club would like to thank all their sponsors and volunteers for making the event possible.
