The young stars of Aberdeen's Byron Boxing Club have returned home triumphant after winning two medals at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Samoa.
John Docherty, 17, was in his element against some redoubtable opponents and won a gold medal in the 75kg final in Apia.
His club colleague and friend, Billy Stuart, also 17, collected a silver in the 56kg category.
Unsurprisingly, the pair have been feted as heroes by their grassroots organisation, following their achievements.
It was a gruelling journey for four of the club's youngest members but one which has proved to be very worthwhile.
John responded to his triumph by saying: "The gold is coming back to Scotland. It’s an unbelievable feeling. I just can’t believe how far I’ve come to get gold.”
Billy added: "I didn’t come all the way to the other side of the world to go home with nothing.
“It feels absolutely brilliant and I’m over the moon to join the other Team Scotland medalists."
It was another feather in the cap for Byron Boxing Club, which has established itself as one of Scotland's most progressive organisations.
And there was delight in the wider world at the success of these two gritty characters with bright futures in the sport.
The club encourages both males and females to get involved in boxing and has members ranging from primary school age to people in their 60s.
Colin Stevenson, one of the club's long-standing supporters, said: "This is a big deal and to have two lads from the same club winning medals is amazing.
"It's not every day you get that kind of achievement."
