Hall will be special guest at Darlington
Boxer Stuart Hall has been invited to Darlington FC's Boxing Day game at Heritage Park.
The Darlington fighter won the IBF World Bantamweight title at the weekend when he beat Vusi Malinga in Leeds, and Quakers boss Martin Gray is keen to celebrate Hall's win.
He said: "I've personally invited him because I think it's brilliant what he's done, to become a world champion, and he deserves some recognition.
"It's a fantastic achievement for a Darlington lad and he's made the town very proud."
Hall will bring his belt to the match and will be introducd on the pitch during half-time of Darlington's fixture with Wakefield.
