Ella Thompstone, VLUK's Joe Gallagher Academy learner, has recently returned from the Esker All Female Box Cup in Ireland. This is a 3 day event where boxers are put into a draw and required to box off to get to the final. Ella was fortunate to gain by to the final competing against Ellen Duggan from Dublin. Ella won this competition via stoppage in the second round and won gold at 63kgs.
Following this success, Ella then went up in weight class to 65kg to compete against Amy Nolan, from Ireland, which Ella lost on a split decision and therefore she gained silver.
We are so proud of Ella's huge achievement taking away a gold and silver medal for her first time at this international competition.
