Irish boxers Peter Brady and David Joe Joyce had to be content with silver at the European Union Cadet Championships this evening after they both lost their finals in Sardinia Italy.

Light flyweight Peter Brady, from the Poleglass club in Belfast, was stopped in round two by England's James Dickens.

And light welterweight David Joe Joyce (St Michael's Athy) was edged out (20-25) by Italian Francesco Nespro.

Both boxers performed magnificently to get to the deciders with Brady beating Turkeys Mustafa Aydin 23-17 in his semi final, and Joyce chalking up a 23-13 last four victory over England's Anthony Fowler.

Brady and Joyce were part of a four strong Irish squad which also included Ruari Dalton (St Johns Belfast) and Des Fahy (Clonmel) who both bowed out at the quarter final stage.
