MJ Finnigan Ltd is happy to announce that they have secured a sponsorship deal with a successful local boxing club for the third successive year. The company is the main kit sponsor and has also assisted in putting on the clubs recent annual show held at the Irish Association Club in Chorlton on May 8th 2011.
St Johns ABC is located in Chorton Cum Hardy in Greater Manchester and has recently been awarded the Sport England’s clubmark which is awarded to clubs by the Amateur Boxing Association of England (ABAE) when the club is able to demonstrate that it meets the ABAE’s accreditation criteria as to boxing programme, child protection, sports equity, ethics and club management.
St Johns is also home to the British Schoolboy champion Bradley Rea who recently secured the national crown by being victorious at the Tri Nations tournament beating his Scottish and Welsh counterparts which is a wonderful achievement for Brad and for the club as a whole.
The club was opened three years ago by parish priest Father P McMahon who saw boxing as a way of engaging youngsters into positive activities.
