CLASSY Newham BC entry Vidal Riley continued his victory march and clinched a London schools' title at York Hall on Sunday, with confident performance against Dale Youth rival Zac Chellie.

Riley looked one of the classiest boxers on view as he found the target with his solid shots to shake his west London rival on his way to a points victory and the London Schools' Class One 50kg title.

Also impressing in Newham club colours at the finals, Desmond Johnson defeated Tommy Fant (Lynn BC) to claim the Class Three 54kg title with another bright display.

However, the London finals saw the exit of another Newham hope, Jack England, who suffered his first defeat of the season after a thrilling contest that saw a narrow verdict go in favour of talented south Londoner Albert Lee.
