New Mills boxer Danielle Allsop, who has recently switched from kickboxing to boxing, emerged as a champion in Ireland.

She competed in the Esker Box Cup as part of the Northwest Warriors, winning her category to continue the promising start to her career in boxing.

Allsop, sponsored by Icon, led by Derbyshire Sport, was a nominee for this year’s High Peak sportsgirl of the year award.

Eight students from Buxton kickboxing club NWCKB will join Team England in Dublin for the world championships. Six of them will be making their national debuts.
