BOXER NEEDED: Great Ayton Boxing Club is calling for a coach to stand in while its regular staff member is away for 12 weeks.

The club has two other volunteers but they are not qualified coaches, and therefore not able to run the club.

A spokesperson said: “Unfortunately unless we can find somebody soon, we will not be able to continue with the Boxing Club in the interim, which will be a great disappointment for everyone.

“We have tried networking with other boxing groups, but to date we have not managed to come up with anyone. “ For more information contact Great Ayton Workingmens Club on 01642-722049 or 722838.
