Whithorn Braveheart boxing sensation Connal McDonald will be representing Scotland this weekend against Norway in and international competition in Inverurie.
Connal has been training hard over the Christmas period in an effort to impress his Scottish coaches and after a recent weekend session in Kirkcaldy, he was selected for the Scottish squad.
Bravehearts Coach Tom Jolly said: “This is a big year for Connal after winning the British title last year he is training harder and is hoping to reach the youth world championships in April. Connal shows great discipline and he is a great role model for all in our club.”
A full report of the international bout involving Connal will be in next week’s Galloway Gazette.
