Boxer Cyrus Pattinson has made an appeal for sponsorship to help his development in the sport.
The 19-year-old, formerly of Alnwick but now living in Cullercoats, is aiming to make the GB Development Squad.
He also has his eye on next year’s Senior ABA Championships.
Pattinson, who won the Northumberland Gazette Sports Personality of the Year Award for 2012, is making the cash plea to help support his training and fighting commitments.
The Birtley ABC representative won his last fight, defeating a more experienced opponent in a bout in Middlesbrough last month.
In 2012, the teenager reached his respective final of the National Junior ABAE Championship.
He recently had a trial to represent England at senior level
