DONCASTER Plant Works’ James Mitchison is through to the quarter-finals of the National Association of Boys’ Clubs 84kg Class C competion without having thrown a punch. He received a third successive walkover in Sunday’s Yorkshire finals at Havercroft.

The club’s other boxer on the bill, Lewis Booth, suffered a unanimous points defeat in his 56kg Class A contest against Wellington’s John Thompson.

My lad is a good boxer and gave a good account of himself, but Thompson’s special and could go all the way,” said Plant coach Ken Blood.
