Three boxers from the University of Hertfordshire Boxing Club were in action at the British University Championship of Sports, with Jess Jellicoe coming home with a silver medal.

It was a great performance by all three for a fledgling club that is just in its second year but already boasts just over 100 members.

Jellicoe was in the U60kg weight and had to battle past an opponent from Leeds in the semi-final.

She did that via stoppage before taking on a much more experienced girl from Essex University.

It led to the referee stopping the fight in the second of three rounds but was still a fine performance.

George Nock lost 2-1 in the U69kg quarter-final and Louise Donohue, who has just returned from a broken hand, went out in the U57kg semi-final to a Sheffield girl.

A spokesman for the club said: “Overall we were really pleased with the performance from all our boxers and we look forward to attending the contest again next year.”
