Sixteen-year-old Storm UK fighter Morgan Holland has finished the Cimac Adidas Superleague on a high this year... being named a Grand Champion.

Competing in the series, based in Windsor, Dorking and Birmingham, the Spilsby club member managed to gain two podium positions last month and came third in his points fighting category on the day.

this meant that, overall in the national league, he came in at second place in the table.

Morgan, who studies at Skegness Grammar School, finished second in his light continuous category and, with a clear points advantage, came in first at the top of the league -seeing him scop the Grand Champion 2015 title in the light continuous boys’ over 63kg section.

“I am pleased to have finished this year on a high, it has been hard work and has taken a lot of dedication to get to this level of competition,” Morgan said.

“I would like to thank my sponsors Cucina Sano, without whom I wouldn’t have been able to compete to the end of the year, and also many thanks to my instructor Wayne Pearl, again without him none of this would have been possible”

Chief instructor Wayne Pearl added: “Morgan has proved himself this year, stepping up into a high level competition, fighting against all the national squads, and has managed to represent his club to his highest ability.

“He has done himself and the club proud to come home with a grand champion in one category and second place over all in his other category.

“He has done this whilst studying for his GCSEs and starting his A levels, something which takes a lot of dedication.

“I for one am really proud of him.”
