MEMBERS of a Doncaster boxing club have been dealt a knockout blow after being asked to leave the venue where they train.

Scawsby Boxing Club has been asked to leave The Sun Inn, and coaches and young boxers are looking for a new venue.

Club president James Mead said: “Everyone is disappointed. It will be a real shame if they can’t continue their training. As far as we are aware, it was the brewery who said we could no longer train.”

A spokesman for Marston’s brewery said the company was investigating.
