BRODSWORTH ABC’S John Johnstone will bid to become a national schoolboy champion this weekend after smashing his way through his semi-final.

The young southpaw from Kev Burton’s stable produced a dazzling display to stop opponent Jerry Mongan from Priory Park ABC in the first round.

Johnstone rocked Mongan’s head back on numerous occasions to ensure that the referee stopped the contest.

He will take on southern champion Sam Perfect (St Mary’s ABC) in the final at Everton Park Sports Centre, Liverpool, on Saturday.
