IN his bid for ring success Kilsyth Golden Gloves boxer Lee Ferns has been treading water, yet still making progress by being capped for Scotland.

The boxer has been running in Kilsyth swimming pool because a knee injury limits his exercise in the gym and on the pavements.

Most recently the 16-year-old pushed the boxer ranked fifth best in the world in his age-group - Caiohin Hynes - all the way in his first fight for Scotland.

And now Ferns is looking ahead to the British championships at Ravenscraig in a fortnight, despite injury disruption to his training schedule and exam timetable.
