At the British WAKO Championships in Solihull there were silver medals for Paddock and Harris.

Chief instructor Andy Whitwell said: “Unfortunately I had a few that were injured or recovering from surgery and illness so we weren’t quite as busy as usual at these big events.

“But those fighters that did attend gave it their all and produced another excellent set of results for the club.

“Once again they proved what a very talented team of fighters they are in the first big events of 2018.”

At the first Peterborough Championship Series event of the year at Bushfield Sports Centre, Daulton carried on her winning ways with a double success and Jay Dunk also picked up two wins.
