Two Liverpool businesses have handed over a new Range Rover Evoque to Liverpool Olympic boxing hopeful Peter McGrail.

McGrail is the European gold and world bronze youth medallist who is strongly tipped to win a medal at the next Olympics.

In June 2017 he made history when he became the first Scouser and only the second Englishman since 1961 to win the European Championship. He also bagged bronze at the world championships in August.

Although Liverpool-based, the young fighter trains at the England Institute of Sport in Sheffield. Liverpool firms Golden Dragon Food and MAJ Law clubbed together to sponsor the Halewood-produced vehicle to get him to and from Yorkshire.

The car was the idea of Golden Dragon Food’s Perry Ng, who helps run one of the city’s oldest Chinese food manufacturers. He said: “We are in a fortunate position to be able to support one of Liverpool’s future sporting stars.

“Peter shows great promise and everyone at Golden Dragon Food and MAJ Law is keen to get behind him so he can compete to the best of his ability and bring as many medals as possible back to the city.”

McGrail himself, added: “I’m thrilled that people in the city believe I have it in me to go the whole distance. Representing Liverpool on the world stage is a real honour.”
