Michael McDonagh goes for glory in the Home Counties Junior Championships in Aylesbury tomorrow.

The Berinsfield member reached the semi-finals of the National Schoolboy Championships last season, but now makes the step up into the under 46kg junior category.

McDonagh has been training hard with sparring partner Owen Gidman, of Bletchley ABC.

The duo have been put through their paces with around 100 rounds of practice ahead of their first taste of junior competition.

McDonagh’s opponent will not be known until the night.
