Garioch had some players down in Birmingham this weekend taking part in the first big competition of the year. It was held in Walsall university campus with over 300 competitors each day. Needless to say our guys where nervous, with new rule changes and some of them moving up weight categories it was never going to be a walk in the park.

Jessie mathewson (-44kg B band) - Silver
James littler -42kg B band - 5th
Ewan macdonald -55kg B band - no result

Well done to all four players great performance on the day.
