Packing a punch: Jabs, hooks and uppercuts!

City's women's team switched sports in an alternative training session on Thursday, trying their hand at boxing - quite literally!

Led by professional boxer Stacey Copeland, the Blues practised their jabs, hooks and uppercuts at Hatton Gym in Hyde.

Some took it a little too seriously, and there was bloodshed - as poor CityTV presenter Kelly O'Donnell took a blow to the face, courtesy of Karen Bardsley!
