I was deeply saddened to read of the passing of Ben Clay.
In my role as chairman of Crawley Boxing Club myself and my colleagues have a lot to thank Ben, and his wife June, for. Ben, along with June, worked tirelessly with us, and was instrumental in helping the club acquire the land in Jubilee Walk, Three Bridges, to build our new gym.
It was with great pride that the honour of opening the new gym was bestowed on Ben, and June, in April 1985.
On behalf of my committee, the coaches, and all the boxers at Crawley Boxing Club, thank you Ben and God bless you.
Geoff Hopcraft, chairman,
Crawley Boxing Club
