A great turnout for all the boxers last night, as over 200 people came along to show their support for the club at the annual presentation night at the Shepherd and Dog in Crays Hill.
The Club thanked all for their support over the last season, for our chosen charity, the "Help Indie Smith" Campaign and announced that we had managed to raise an incredible £2,000.00 - We also confirmed that for the first time in the clubs history, we would carry on supporting this charity for the next season too.
The club thanked all the coaches, volunteers and parents for their help during the season.
A Special thank you went to Fay who has done loads behind the scene lately too. Also, Jim for putting in plenty of hours at the gym and attending nearly all the away shows as a coach last season.
The Newbies Kids Academy was the original idea of our very own Rev, Errol Jacobs who set it up and got us to where we are now with some fantastic training structures put into place to take the club forward. Errol is moving to London soon and will be very much missed by the whole club.
We announced plans for the clubs future and will hope to have more news by September.
We confirmed that a new class that we will be setting up for youngsters under the age of 9 will be named - The Adam Hills Boxing Foundation.
Details for the forthcoming Lithuania trip will be confirmed in the next 2 weeks.
We officially introduced our new club Competition Secretary for next season - Terry Emmins and also thanked Mike Ward for his hard work and commitment over the last 2 seasons.
Jodie Whitaker received a special award for being the first female boxer to represent the club.
Rio Emmins and James Eaglesfield both received a Jack Petchey Award for outstanding achievement.
The latest awards for the Kids Boxing Academy were handed out and it was great to see so many parents bringing them along.
The Squad Members received a boxed medal for their efforts over the last season, each and every one of them got a massive ovation when they were presented. There were 22 in all, with a further 12 that were unable to attend.
The 9 schoolboys that boxed in Ireland recently all received a special plaque that we had made.
The other awards were as follows -
Most Improved Boxer - Sonny Horvath - ( Ollie collected his award for Sonny ).
Best Newcomer - James Eaglesfield - ( One of the first from the Academy to box competitively ).
"Boxers" Boxer - Jim Head ( Always a nice award to get from your fellow boxers ).
Bout of the Season - Harry Cornwell ( following in the footsteps of some top former Billericay Boys ).
Schoolboy of the Season - Rio Emmins ( One of the most dedicated trainers in the gym at present )
Junior of the Season - Ollie Hood ( After only 5 bouts made it to the National Semi Finals and trained hard every session throughout the season ).
Youth/Senior of the Season - Steve Woods ( after a 4 year break made a comeback with over 100 rounds of sparring before his first comeback bout ).
A great night and thank you all for your support, the club has a very positive future...!
