Bury Judo Club returned home with two medals from the BJC National Championships at Kettering Leisure Centre.

The highlight of the day was 17-year-old Beth O’Connor taking the gold medal and national title in the ladies’ U52kg kyu grade, winning all her fights with ippon scores.

This is the second national title for Beth this year as she also won the BJC National Open championships in May.

Ralph Williams, meanwhile, took a well deserved bronze in the U46kg category, matching the bronze he won at the Open.

Other club members who took part but were out of the medals this time were Haydn Williams and Liam Trill Green.
