Youngster set for third national final appearance

Five Star’s Brook Eaton will bid for another national schoolgirls’ title at Basildon Leisure Centre this weekend.

The youngster is appearing in her third successive final, having bounced back from the disappointment of losing her first to win on points against previously unbeaten Danielle Marshall of Tyne & Wear last year.

And Eaton faces a tough test against Kara Murray, who has won 11 of her 15 fights and been selected to box for England at the European Championships.

But coach Eddie Kelly said: “I really believe in this girl going on and doing massive things in boxing. She lost the first year in the schoolgirls’ but went away, didn’t give up and pushed harder the following year and won on points.

“This year is the harder year for Brook, having to compete against girls a year-and-a-half older than her, so if Brook gets the win over Kara this will put her to the top of the pile.
“I truly believe in Brook. From the moment I took her on the pads when she walked into the Five Star gym in Harold Hill it’s been a great relationship.

“She gives her all to be the best girl out there and that’s all we ask of her at the gym.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
