NEWLY turned professional boxer, Jordan Gill from Chatteris, passed on some of his training and fitness secrets to pupils at his former school - the town’s Cromwell Community College.

The 18 year-old star boxer, who took his A-levels at the community college just a few weeks ago and is a former head boy, returned for a special Olympic-themed end of term workshop with pupils from Years 8 and 9.

He was also due to hold a session with Year 7 pupils but this unfortunately had to be cancelled due to the rain.

Jordan talked about fitness and demonstrated some of his boxing moves which pupils then had a chance to try for themselves.

Jordan has recently graduated from amateur to professional and won his first bout at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield against Kristian Laight.

He has been coached for ten years by his father Paul, of Chatteris Boxing Club.

Jordan finished his amateur career as Junior ABA Champion in May.

The school explained this was a different end of term activity in place of the usual year group sports days.

It was organised by head of faculty Lee-Ann Oldfield and her team.

The students were awarded gold, silver and bronze Olympic-style medals.
