Warren Schofield (seventh Dan), Rochdale Judo Club (RJC), said: “Well done to all who have helped Noa with her training, particularly Dave Hulme who has made sure Noa has arrived safely at the dojo on training nights. He has also been putting in extra time on the mat with her before the session starts.

“Brilliant performance from Isobel Kitchen winning silver at the British Cadets Championships in Sheffield.

“Isobel went the distance in the final just missing out on the gold.

“Well done Isobel from all at RJC and to all the other cadets that fought in the Championships from RJC.
