Two Boston Kickboxers have returned home after competing for Great Britain.

Nesta Baxter and Ambie Brockelsby can both hold their heads high after a hard week of fighting in Poland.

Competing near Krakow, the two youngsters were among the 1,690 entrants looking for international glory.

In total, 36 countries competed.

Nesta, 13, fought in the girls’ under 50kg group and came sixth overall in her catergory.

She was defeated by a Croatian opponent who went on to win gold.

Ambie, 10, fought in the boys’ under 28kg points section and came fifth overall in his category.

Like Nesta, he lost to the overall winner, this time a Hungarian.

Both Ambie and Nesta compete for the Evolution Martial Arts team.

The duo were aided on their travels by sponsorship from Smart Move, Acorn Taxis, Boston Mayflower, Longhurst Housing, MS Events, Future Fitness and FBF Blinds .
