Barnsley Star boxer Tony Cruise's unbeaten run was stretched further with a win over the weekend. Cruise, 32, is building himself a good reputation with seven straight wins.


His seventh victim was Retford's Richard Tindall, whom he beat despite giving experience and weight away. Trainer Trevor Schofield said: "We'd like him to box for the Yorkshire belt soon. I'm sure he'll turn professional this year."


Cruise's stablemate Will Harty, 13, from Smithies, also picked up a win at a show in Kellingley. Harty, a traveller, beat Hartlepool's John Oats and is expecting to feature in the forthcoming schoolboys championships.
