KILSYTH Golden Gloves welterweight Derek Skinner was in action at Meadowbank Stadium on Friday night in the final of the Scottish Championships.

Unfortunately Derek lost a very close contest and had to settle for the silver medal in what has been a fantastic season for him, winning eight of his last ten outings.

The senior finals are the highlight of the season and Skinner did himself and his club proud.

It’s been a busy few weeks for Golden Gloves.

Lee Ferns won gold in the Scottish Junior Championships last week and Lewis Johnston and Jamie McLaughlin picked up silvers.

All will be in action at the Kilsyth clubs annual boxing show on Saturday, April 14.
