A town taekwondo club have enjoyed great results across the globe. 

Four British Taekwondo School Bolton students have been celebrating successes in the Netherlands and Australia. 

BTS were part of a combined Great Britain team that took part in the WTF Dutch Masters International on Saturday, May 25. 

Youngsters Laurey-Jay Morrison, aged nine, and Casey Hilton, aged six, were joined by Carrie Hilton, aged 37, at the event with all three training under the watchful eye of head coach Jason Morrison. 

Barrow Bridge’s Laurey-Jay, a Belmont Primary School pupil, helped GB to gold. 

He took on German champion Nils Jungmann in a two-round match, losing the first before coming back strongly in the second to win by 19 points to triumph in the 28kg A class. 

Bromley Cross’s Casey, was a stoppage winner over a fighter from the Netherlands in her opener. 

The Eagley Infant School pupil then took on a fellow GB fighter from Liverpool and won 24-10 at the end of the second round. 

The final saw her up against Michkette Barrek, from the Netherlands, and Casey came up just short, winning a silver medal for her fine efforts. 

Hilton senior also picked up a silver medal, her section including British Champion Deona Chan and multiple international champion Alinde Huijzer, from the hosts. 

It was Huijzer who prevented Hilton from winning the title, the Dutch fighter taking the final on points. 

Over in Australia, Leasha Morrison, Laurey-Jay’s elder sister, picked up a major title. 

She won the Australian National Kickboxing title under the World Association of Kickboxing banner to complete a fine weekend for Bolton martial arts.
