Boxing revisited

As my Shrieval year ticks away, meeting John Edwards on Wednesday evening triggered that I had intended to revisit Guildford City Boxing Club before the end of my year to celebrate the great work that he does. Yesterday evening the Club was the usual hive of activity with some thirty young people in training (see the photo). Also met “Pink Tyson” aka Kallia Kourouni who ranks 15th in the world for female boxers who is a coach and trainer at the club. John and his fellow coaches do a fantastic job with the young people with many advancing to be professional boxers but all of whom enjoy the challenge and camaraderie of the Club. It is all run on a shoe string and deserves support.
