Maltese wrestlers under the directions of National Coach Jesmond Giordimaina participated in three different weight categories of the English Championships that were held in Bolton.

Young Gary Giord1maina currently Junior British Champion of the 55kg category was the best of the Malta team by winning the Bronze Medal of the 60kg category after having to participate in a higher category as the 55kg category was short of participants.

Adam Vella also had the misfortune to wrestle in a higher division as was the case of Gary Giordimaina. Although not winning any bouts he managed to give a good account of himself. Like Vella, David Galea and Bengi Micallef had to content in taking part in a higher category.

For the record Galea ended seventh after beating a wrestler from Scotland while Micallef also managed to do well by finishing in the 8th position after beating a Polish wrestler.

Every think considered all Maltese wrestlers gave good accounts of themselves. Galea ended seventh in the 74kg. On the other hand Micallef managed to end eighth.
