MILFORD Haven Karate Clubs three-man senior team has been crowned UK Team Champions in Birmingham.
The Milford three-man team consisted of instructor Kevin John, Jamie Phillips and World silver medallist Luke Howard, of Karate Wales who beat a very good team from Halifax in a hard fought final.
In the individual categories both Kevin and Jamie picked up silver medals. Kevin was disappointed that he did not retain his title, but on the whole it was an excellent day for the club.
Kevin said: "I'm delighted for Jamie. And for us to take team gold is a great achievement for the club.
"Having a world silver medallist in our team inspired us to fight at the highest level.
"We have few busy months ahead of us with Welsh league and Welsh squad training, which will hopefully lead us to the Euro Championships in Italy 2014."
