FOUR medals were won by Barnstaple Judo Club members at the British Judo Council Open National Championship.

Leading the way with silvers at Kettering were Sam Hill and Matthew Bennett. Beth Ambrose and Stuart Otani returned with bronze medals.

Sam was second in the junior male 12-13 yrs 46-50kg category, while Matthew competed in the senior male 3-4 kyu 100-150kg section.

Beth's bronze came at youth female 16-17 years 52-57kg level, with Stuart third in the senior male dan grades 100-150kg class.

Success at a series of national events and in training sessions saw Sam and Beth selected in the British Judo Council's squad for the Ippon Trophy in Antwerp, Belgium.

Beth is unable to take up her place because of exams but Sam will compete for Britain this weekend.
