John brings a wealth of knowledge and will be a pillar for the club in our plight to greater things.

Here is a personal message from Mr John Morris.


Dear Chris,

It has been a delight to me to learn about the wonderful work you, your volunteers and members are doing within the community of Kingsteignton and as President of SABA I am honoured to accept the invitation to become a Patron of your club.

Boxing has an important part to play in the development of young people and none of the work would be possible without the dedication of volunteers like yourself who are prepared to give their time, skills and experience to the club and the wider community.

I wish you continued success and look forward to hearing more as time goes on.

Kindest Regards – John Morris

But of course I am happy to endorse your wonderful work and the club’s progress. Since I retired from BBBofC I have been honoured to be the President of SABA and of Northampton ABC, a club I founded in 1953.

Best Regards John
