Growing into Greatness and Inspire to Achieve are two motto’s that resonate with Cadet Lance Corporal Faye McCormick, these being the belief’s of the Army Cadet Force and England Boxing.
Cadet McCormick has been training hard to have successfully completed her 1 star training and has recently been selected to represent Greater Manchester ACF at the regional cross country and rugby sporting competitions. For her hard work and commitment Cadet McCormick recently received a very deserved promotion to Lance Corporal.
Apart from training hard with the Army Cadets, Cadet LCpl Faye McCormick has recently represented England Boxing at the National Junior Championships in Sweden and was awarded, Best Female Junior Boxer. Amongst some of her other achievements are:
In 2018 Cadet LCpl McCormick made history by boxing in the first all female amateur boxing show in Manchester. Was the North West Region Junior Champion Boxer. Won ESKER Box Cup Boxing to become the World Champion in 2019. Also in 2019, trained with the GB Olympic Boxing team at the Olympic Village, Sheffield.
Covid arrived in 2020 which halted taking part in the big competitions. In March 2022, Cadet LCpl McCormick attended the National Finals in London and is due to attend the European Boxing Championships later this year. Fantastic Achievements!
As a member of Bredbury Detachment we are all very proud of her achievements and wish her all the very best in her boxing and Army Cadet journey.
