Dagenham's Billy Adams and Tariq Agius face finals at the National Association of Boys & Girls' Club Championships in Bristol this weekend.

The pair won their semi-final bouts in style at the Hengrove Park Leisure Centre, where Agius met Welsh champion Ethan Shelham (Cwmbran ABC) in the Class A 44kg group and won all three rounds for a unanimous points triumph.

Adams cruised into the Class A 48kg final with an inside-the-distance victory against Joseph Adams (Downend ABC, Bristol), forcing a count in the third round and stoppage after one minute 40 seconds, having won the London 2012 Inspired Olympic Legacy Award at his school’s annual presentation evening.

Agius faces Vaughan Gates (Salisbury ABC, Liverpool), as Adams meets Joe McGrail (Everton Red Triangle, Liverpool). Bailey Wallace takes on Amelia Jarvis (Mayflower ABC) in the Class A Female 48kg final.
