Rochdale Judo Club Senior Championship winners with British Judo Association referee Dave Harrison
Rochdale Judo Club held their Senior Championship on Thursday 5 December with Emma Taylor taking gold for the women and Liam Ellis taking gold for the men.
The table officials were Warren Schofield 7th Dan and Mick Armstrong 3rd Dan from Rochdale Judo Club, and British Judo Association referee Dave Harrison.
There were two categories: Men and Women.
Spokesman for Rochdale Judo Club, Eddie Thomas, 3rd Dan said: “Debbie Schofield, Daisy Winter and Emma Taylor, in the women's section, demonstrated some real attack and determination to win but Emma Taylor dominated throughout and took the gold with two wins.
“Her winning throw was tani-otoshi, a rear sacrifice move.
“Debbie Schofield took silver and Daisy Winter was a worthwhile bronze medallist.
“The men's contests were much more closely fought.
“Liam Ellis, Oeian Mason and Adam Tasker were well matched, but Liam eventually conquered both his opponents with yet two more tani-otoshi sacrifice throws, to take the gold medal.
“Adam Tasker deserved his silver and Oeian Mason, having beaten Adam last week at a competition in Kendal, lost this time to him and took home the bronze.”
Rochdale Judo Club Chairman Warren Schofield said: “I would like to thank Dave Harrison for his fairness and for officiating.
“And congratulations to all the contestants for their standard of judo skills and the sporting attitudes that they had demonstrated.”
