The show was matched by Chalvedon ABC and Essex matchmaker Dave Hardy in tandem with Guildford City and Southern Counties’ Ben Harmsworth.

Dave Hardy said, “Every bout from start to finish was very well matched and well contested.

“We had a lot of good feedback from visiting clubs and boxers and all were in agreement that the decisions were spot on.

“I’d like to say a thank you to the officials, who were great as always, for giving up their time on a Sunday.”

Essex secretary Lee Kerr said, “A thanks goes out to all the volunteers that helped.

“Special thank you goes to Essex chairman Mark Siggers, matchmakers Dave Hardy and Ben Harmsworth and head coach Glen Dainty.”
