AN ARBROATH High School pupil, 15-year-old Jamie McDowell, has been chosen for the Scottish boxing team. He lives with his dad, John, in Dishlandtown Street and has been a member of Arbroath Boxing Club for over six years.

Jamie competes in the 75 kilo middleweight group and has been commuting regularly to Glasgow to spar and train.

He left town yesterday (Thursday) to join his Scottish team-mates who will be travelling in the team coach to Cardiff Sports University where his fights in the international competition are scheduled for today (Friday), tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday.
