MORE than 60 players took part in Littleport Judo Club's annual age-banded competition.
Six home club members competed and between them won five medals. Harry Welchman won gold in the under-27kg category of the eight to 11-year-old age group.
Alex Kathro was in formidable form to win all his contests, some with throws and one with a hold down, to take the under-46kg gold medal.
In the under-34kg category, novice Sam Lachmann had a tough draw and picked up valuable experience despite not reaching the final four.
Bradley Inskip beat more experienced players to reach the last four to win a deserved bronze medal.
In the 12 to 15-year-old age group, Nicholas Johnson, at under-60kg, also fought well against older opponents to earn a place in the last four and win a bronze.
