Female British Army Boxing

Female Army Boxing

Boxing in the Army is a sport for both males and females on a completely equal footing, which is reaping real rewards for the Army Boxing Team.

The opportunities for females to box are wide ranging from unit level boxing with no previous experience to European Champions joining the Army.

The female squad train and compete alongside the men and the Army Boxing Team is exactly that, a team of strong minded committed individuals who perform better with the support of their team mates.

The Army Boxing Team currently boasts:

2014 Commonwealth Games Bronze Medalist 60Kg and Northern Ireland representative– LCpl Alanna Murphy
2014 Army Sportswoman of the Year – LCpl Alanna Murphy
2015 England Elite Championship Silver Medalist 69kg and England representative– LCpl Stephanie Wroe

2015 England Development Class B Champion 69kg – Sgt Nikita Silvera
2015 England Development Class B Silver Medalist 75kg – Gnr Courtenay Taylor

The squad are very capably supported and trained by our lead female coach Cpl Siobhan Haynes. The squad is soon to be joined by 2014 European Youth Champion Ebony Jones who has recently joined the Army.
