He will be joined by clubmate Charlie Edwards who slammed a first-round success over Danson Youth rival Steve Ellis in their Class A 46kgs semi-final.

However, Newham's George Penney was eliminated in his Class A 54kgs meeting with Al Osman (Nemesis), after winning his qualifying contest with Steve Iqbal from Northolt.
