Afewee Junior boxer Vivien Parsons, 15, was scouted by England coaches during her impressive performances at the England Boxing junior national championships in Rotherham. The event took place in late March 2019.

She becomes the second afewee boxer to be invited onto the England talent programme in the four seasons we have been running.

Everyone at the club are super proud and this is definitely well deserved, said head coach Bobby Miltiadous. “Vivien is one of our most dedicated young boxers and this comes after months of hard work and preparation. Her consistency, work ethic and willingness to listen are an example to the rest of the club and community that, as long as you are prepared to stick to something and put the effort in, you will reap the rewards.”
