A GREAT night was had by all at the first of our annual Fight Nights with a huge crowd in attendance.
It is times like this that we see the quality, goodwill and generosity of people inside and outside our club who have supported us and made this a successful night that everyone enjoyed.
Special thanks must go to our boxers and their trainers who have all worked extremely hard over the last number of weeks in preparation for the night.
Thanks also to Clonoe Boxing club, timekeepers, corner men, judges, medical staff, Stewarts, Glenavon House Hotel, M.C – Brendan Fullen and referee Plunkett McCallan.
A word of thanks goes to the organisers of the event - JP McNamee and Kezzy Nugent.
