COUNTY TIMES lets us down again

Despite assurances from Gavin, the sports reporter at the County Times, that the Newtown boxers will be afforded some regular local publicity following their impressive displays and regular performances the Newspaper has failed to feature last weeks reports.

I would like to apologise to the boxers, that did so well at the recent Shrewsbury show, for the lack of apparent interest of our local Newspaper. You deserve the highest praise for your performances, and we as a club are very proud of how well you performed, well done.

I hope that at some point in the near future we can sort out some regular feature in the County Times to celebrate the success of our very brave and hard working boxers. The culmination of such dedicated training that leads you into the ring, and earns you praise of other clubs and fighters, demands a great deal of respect, and our local press needs to hear this message loud and clear.
