BIDEFORD ABC and colleagues from Barnstaple treated boxers from Sheffield to a training weekend away from the city. Sheffield Burn Greave ABC were successful in obtaining funding for a training weekend away and chose to visit Bideford. They started by joining the Bideford boxers for an evening of training at their new premises on the Clovelly Road industrial estate. Then came two mornings of training with boxers from Bideford and Barnstaple and more training at Westward Ho! in the afternoons. Bideford club spokesman Jeff Facey said the Bideford and Barnstaple boxers had benefited from the different training methods and styles of their Sheffield counterparts, while Sheffield were impressed with the technique that local boxers had attained.
