Hatty Nylan claimed the honours for Hebden Bridge Boxing Club with three recent successes including a victory in a Yorkshire vest.

Nylan started her hat-trick of victories by beating Chelsea Arnell from the Kingston Club in Hull in the Senior 58kg clash at Kellingley near Castleford.

The Calderdale fighter took the bout by a unanimous decision, helped by her opponent receiving a standing count in the final round.

Nylan then travelled to Accrington to take on Ellis Nuttall from the Clayton ABC club.

Here she gained another unanimous decision and was unlucky not to stop Nuttall in the final round.

Barnsley Metrodome was the third and final venue as Nylan, representing Yorkshire, once again found herself faced by Arnell after her original oppponent pulled out.

The outcome was the same with Nylan winning all four two minute rounds with the East Yorkshire fighter again receiving a standing count in the last.

There was no such luck for George Standring and Matthew Crouch who both tasted defeat.

Standring, fighting as a junior at 63kg, lost to Ben Maloney by a controversial unanimous decision at Bridlington.

He has the chance to put things right when the two meet again at Halifax Boxing Club tomorrow.

Crouch was also fighting as a junior at 69 kg in a Yorkshire semi-final at the White Rose Boxing show in Wakefield,

Crouch lost to his Bradford opponent by a split decision.
