CASEY O'RIORDAN played his part in the Newham BC win-treble success at the ABA junior pre-quarter-final contests held at Hayes on Sunday.

He had to work hard for his win over Ben Kaluza from the Oxford Boxing Academy, but clinched the points success to book his quarter-final place in the class four 60kg division.

Two other boxers from the Newham club also continued their winning ways on the national title trail.

In the class four 57kg division, George Moughton (Newham) maintained his improved form with a good display against Tommy Smith (Bushey) to make sure of a unanimous verdict from the ringside judges.
