Success for fighters in club’s open series

G Force Fight Squad clocked up some excellent results at the second G Force Open series held on July 10. Between them they won nine first places, six second and three third.

As always, three of the G Force lads had tough categories with them ending up having to compete against each other for the places. Bobby Brannen was victorious with Stephen Wragg picking up 2nd and Harry Waterhouse just missing out on 3rd place. Bobby had two other wins on the day as well as a 3rd place and Stephen won another 2nd place.

Liam Radburn took 1st place in his intermediate section and tried his hand at continuous fighting for the first time, where he was awarded a 2nd place. Pierce Manning, who is sponsored by Webb Ellis, fought his way to 1st place in his continuous category.

1st places were also won by Jack Mills, Matty Crossin and Thomas Townsend in straight finals and Sam Cullen in a round robin.

Matty also took 2nd in points fighting as did Shea Wheeler, and Shannon Kennedy was awarded with a 3rd place in her intermediate section along with Skye Bennett, Luke Townsend and Jack Mills in their points sections.

Dylan Wilson did well to take 2nd in what was a big points category and 3rd in continuous.

The fighters now look forward to the third event in the series when they have the opportunity to win a championship belt.
