Acorn Judo Club got the competition year off to a great start when eight junior members and a senior instructor visited Earl Shilton.

The members attended for the first competition of the year and came away with six gold, six silver and three bronze medals.

Six of the lower grades also entered the open, higher grade section and came away with two gold, three silver and a bronze medal.

Danial Coupland entered the competition despite having a painful inflamed left hand and fought through his group, still managing to pick up the silver.

Sarah Williamson, an Acorn instructor, collected silver, only losing out to a much younger and stronger opponent.

Julie Norman, the Acorn senior coach and national referee and husband Dave, area timekeeper and reorder were also at the competition in an official capacity as was Sue Allen and Ian Gilbert.

Dave said: “The standard of judo from all the entrants was outstanding and they all did themselves proud.”

The winners were:

Ben Allen - one gold and one silver

Joe Allen - two bronze

Amie Coupland - one gold and one silver

Harrison Ainslie - two gold

Sasha Clare - gold

Michaela Evans - one gold and one silver

Fallon McGilloway - one silver and one Bronze
