Walker packs a punch in Alnwick win

TERI boxer Gareth Walker was a huge hit at Alnwick when he out-pointed northern champion Martin Dickson.

And it was sweet revenge for the super heavyweight, who suffered defeat to the same opponent at Alnwick last year.

Coach Billy Finn said: “It was quite an even match all the way through but Gareth boxed well. He fought the better fight and deserved his win.”

On a disappointing night, five Hawick boxers made the journey over the border, but organisers could only pair Walker up with an opponent.
