Two junior members of Foulden based East March-Sportif Judo made their competition debuts at the weekend.

Nine-year old Ewart Robertson and Anna Marsh, aged 11, competed in the Sportif Inter Club Tournament at Tranent.

Ewart Robertson from Auchencraw proved to be a very strong contender and won the gold medal in his section and also a bronze in a higher weight, while Anna, from Reston, won the bronze medal in her section.

Coach George Tones said ‘I am very pleased at how these two young judoka have stepped up to the challenge of their first competition and to bring three medals home is testament to all their hard work and commitment’.

Both Anna and Ewart are pupils at Reston Primary School and have been training with East March-Sportif Judo for less than a year.
