CITY WELCOME JESS BEEDHAM TO THE CLUB AS A COACH

The club is delighted to announce that former West Hull Boxing Club & Brough Boxing Academy coach and matchmaker Jess Beedham joins the coaching staff at City. Jess has a lifetime of experience involved in boxing, she has boxed herself and pulls no punches when she is shouting out in the gym.

CLUB CHAIRMAN "LETS TRAVEL AND FAR & WIDE TO COMPETE"

Club founder and Chairman is keen to get the boxers out competing far and wide as the club finds itself in promising financial position. Following the superb sponsorship deal from centre facility company City of Hull Sport & Community Group, it now means the boxing club can operate in the facility rent free, which means the subs and club income is going towards the kids themselves.

"Its been a long slog to get to this point where we find ourselves, my dream was always for the club to operate free of rent. The only costs the club has to worry about is day to day to expenses like petrol, or insurance, affiliation or championship entrys etc" Said Gibbons, club founder.

"Now with a little help from various small grants, the numbers in the gym are good which means the club is in a very priviledged position financially, we need to make sure our boxers see the benefit of that money by getting them out and about, some may be abroad tournaments."

the club committee will meet 8th May to discuss the immediate future, but before tournaments kick back off we are sure they will be discussing new equipment in the gym also.

CLUB LOOKS TO GET BACK ON TRACK

With Covid 19 restrictions steadily lifting across the UK the club is starting to gear itself up for a revamped effort to name a strong boxing squad. With numbers at a record high now, some real talented young people are coming through the doors, the Coaching team feel blessed with some of the characters that are developing.

One famililar face is that of Alex Sutton former Senior Novice National Champion who has retruned to training showing just a hightlight of things to come at the club as a whole.
