June 2014 National Stadium
Edgar Vuskans claimed his
first Irish Title this afternoon at the home
of Irish Boxing - the National Stadium Dublin. Edgar beat his
opponent, Padraig McDonagh Geesala on a convincing unanimous
decision to claim the Irish Junior Cadet Title but more importantly
the 54kg birth on the Irish Schoolboy team for the European
Championships in Hungary at the end of the month... Well done to
Edgar and of course Head Coach Danny McGrinder, without who’s
dedication, guile and expertise, none of the success would
materialise... NOW FOR EUROPEAN GOLD!
Edgar's the second club
member to be representing Ireland at the European
Schoolboy Championships in the last few years, well done to Danny
McGrinder and the coaching team at Glengormley ABC...
Managing weight was again the
crucial factor... 'there were TEN boxers
entered at 54kg and on the day almost half had moved up a weight or
even two'... back at the Antrim's head coach Danny had considered
keeping Edgar at 52kg which he comfortably made but decided against
this as All Ireland's and Europeans were on the Club's agenda.
Strategic decision made, result now achieved -
