A small team, all instructed by Senior Master John Williamson, made the journey south to Ravenscraig Regional Sports Centre to compete against the best their country has to offer in each of their age groups.

Andrew Currie was the most notable success, winning the coveted title of overall junior Scottish champion for the second time in his taekwon-do competitive career. The 2nd Degree Black Belt took gold in all three events of sparring, patterns and special technique in which he competed.

Following in his father’s footsteps, 3rd kup Blue Belt Jack Williamson claimed the sparring title of Scottish champion for his division.

Ross Hunter took a silver for sparring, while Glenn Forbes also won a sparring silver and a bronze for patterns. Cameron Smith won a bronze both at sparring and patterns, and further bronzes were clinched by 1st Degree Black Belt Ryan Houghton (lightweight sparring division), Andrew Smith and Ewan Lee (both sparring).
