A teenage boxer is just one bout away from winning a major national competition.

Jessica Pattinson is gearing up for the final of the England Boxing Schools’ Championships in Sheffield this Saturday.

The 13-year-old secured her place in the showdown with a fine semi-final victory over Tamworth’s Patrycka Gnatowska, in Evesham, last weekend.

Landing the title would see the Alnwick Amateur Boxing Club star exact revenge on her final opponent, Chantel Whiting.

The Plymouth boxer defeated Pattinson at Alnwick’s home show on St George’s Day.

However, the talented north Northumberland lass is confident she can come out on top at the weekend.
