SHREWSBURY AND SEVERNSIDE BOXING CLUB HOLD A DINNER BOXING EVENING AT THE LORD HILL HOTEL
This evening I attended The Lord Hill Hotel to watch the Shrewsbury & Severnside Boxing Club fight night that included a lovely meal. I sat next to my neiphew’s (Duncan Ellson) Farther in Law Dr Bob Wilson who was one of two doctors in attendance. (small world) I also found out that there were also some of the lads who were boxing were also Duncans friends.
Tonight was an on off on off event due to severe concerns by the police over an open boxing night a few months ago. I am pleased that this was able to go ahead and it proved to be trouble free as we all knew it would be, although poor Colin Hough who runs the boxing club and promoted this event had to work very hard and long to ensure it went ahead. The crowds backed Colin to the hilt with over 300 attending.
Please look at the pictures below that were taken at the time of the event in order of the night.
They might only be either three rounds each lasting two minutes or three rounds lasting three minutes each but all the lads give it 110% in the ring and they are tired out when they come to get thier awards.
I hope that you enjoyed the pictures that Robert took, it was a very hectic night and the time went past very quick. I enjoyed the night and to cap the evening off all five boxers from the Shrewsbury & Severnside Boxing Club that took part tonight won their bouts. So it was a win win for Colin and all of the lads who took part as well as those who help with the training. Well done Colin I want to know when the next one is put on as both the wife and myself will be there, alas this evening Tricia was laid up with flu and could not attend and she was so sad to have missed it.
