May I take this opportunity through your columns to thank all the Hawick public who attended our annual Boxing Club show, and to our sponsors for the evening, namely James Clamp, Hamish Brown, Jock Reids, Steven Patterson (Blacklock and Douglas), Colin Bain, George Telfer, Ian Smith (Waverley Bar), Billy and Alan Finn, Benny Sutherland, Harry Keddie, Craig Dawson, Colin Purvis, Gareth Walker, Jock Grieve and Norman Hook.
The money raised from the evening allows the club to provide the youth of Hawick the opportunity to train at Think Fitness and to develop their skills to box at our club show and, if they wish, to gain Eastern District and Scottish honours.
Apologies to Richie and Jim Brown who presented the Dodger Brown Trophy to the best junior boxer, who this year was Connor Sutherland. This unfortunately wasn’t mentioned in the recent Hawick News report.
Chairman, Hawick ABC
