Fergus MacFarlane brought a bronze medal for judo back to Aberdeenshire after competing at the Sainsbury’s School Games in Manchester which took place earlier this month.

Fergus, 16, earned his medal in the boys under 81kg group. He also helped Team Scotland to win their silver medal. Fergus is a member both the Garioch and Meldrum Judo Clubs and has been thriving in the sport since he was eight years old.

His win is made all the more special as just one month before the competition, Fergus was seriously ill in hospital.
