The latest news from the Powerday Hooks club

Powerday Hooks had plenty to celebrate with four of their members being crowned London Schools champions.

Jamie Barrett lifted the title at 34kg after defeating Monty Robinson of Repton in their final.

The 11-year-old only made it through to Sunday's bout after beating Bodyshots rival Billy Dighton in a semi-final on Saturday.

There was joy too for brother Nathan Barrett, with the reigning National Schools champion claiming the London title at 43kg.
