CARLUKE fighter Jordan McShane (15) helped a team of 16 Team Scotland under-16 amateur boxers thrash their North England Amateur Boxing Select counterparts 12-4 at a dramatic Amateur Boxing Scotland showdown in Manchester on December 4.

Fourth year Carluke High School pupil Jordan, of Albert Park, outboxed tough English opponent Callum Holland in three two-minute rounds before winning 28-20 on points.

Among those watching was Jordan’s dad and coach Jamie, who said: “I’m thrilled for my son that he managed to win.”
