Dick calls it a day

Joseph Bulmer

DICK Brownson has resigned as president of Bideford Amateur Boxing Club, due to failing health.

Dick has had a lifelong involvement in the sport, including as president of Barnstaple ABC in the 1980s.

He began his own career as an amateur boxer in 1948 and later went on to hold most professional licences issued by the British Boxing Board of Control. He retired as a Director of the Board and Western Area Steward in 2002.

Dick wishes every success to all North Devon boxers in the future.
