Middleton and Wirksworth Freestyle Wrestling Club sent a small team of wrestlers up to the North East last weekend to compete in the British Novice Championships.

The event at Middlesbrough saw Troy Hunt, competing in only his fourth competition at 22kg, collect a gold medal. Kane Hunt in the 59kg also picked up a gold medal and, to finish off the trio, Kyle Hunt in the 66kg category collected a silver medal, losing out in the final to a more experienced British Academy Wrestler.

Once Kane had made light work of his group, he put on his referee’s uniform and spent the rest of the day gaining experience in refereeing and, for his efforts, was able to referee in several final bouts.
