MEMORY LANE: Grantham boxers contested ABA titles

Three BMARC (Grantham) boxers contested Notts and Lincs regional ABA schoolboy title bouts at Ollerton in February, 1980.

Darren Smith (left) won the senior ‘A’ 58kg division title, and his stablemate Andrew Pinching (centre) triumphed in the junior ‘B’ 48kg division.

Mark McPhail lost in the semi-finals of the senior ‘A’ 52kg division.

Pinching went on to play drums for Grantham band English Dogs, and for many years now has been doing the same for punk legends The Damned.
