Scilly’s Judo Club members returned from Penzance yesterday with a clutch of medals.

They spent Sunday at the Town’s leisure centre taking on youngsters from across Cornwall in a selection of contests for different ages and weight categories.

Harry Stone and Jevon Hughes took Gold, while Silver medals were awarded to Sam James, Corey Graham, Leyla Guy and Isabella Taylor.

Lewis Taylor, Justin Jesenko, Inca Reynolds and Evie Jenkins all received Bronze medals in their categories.

Dave Stone says the standard of judo at the tournament was very good and quite a few mainland team coaches commented on how pleased they were to see the Scilly squad out in force. They also commented on the good behaviour of the islands’ children.

The pupils were accompanied by Dave Stone, Matt Honeychurch, Pete Reynolds and Sarah Taylor and they received additional  support from Duggie and Gayle Asten, Faye Crompton, and Rob and Vicky Hughes.

Jim, Karen, Ben and Lewis Johnson also turned up to support the islanders.
