Tom's German tour with top young boxers
BEECHVILLE MAN COACHES IRISH SQUAD
CLONARD Boxing Club's very own coach, Tom Hayes of Beechville, travelled last week to Brandenburg in Germany as coach of the Irish National Youths squad.
The team competed in a multi nations cup under the guidance of the Wexford man.
The sixty year old, who was also Billy Walsh's coach during his career, put Ireland's premier junior squad through their paces at the competition, which acts as a fore runner to the World Youth Championships which take place in Thailand later this year.
Chairperson of the Clonard Boxing Club, Francis Keeling, joked this week that he is confident that between his international duties, Tom will always find time for the Clonard based club.
Francis also hopes that as the club prepares to go back training on Monday, September 10, at Unit 26 at the Westpoint Business Park, new members will take up the opportunity to train under an internationally acclaimed coach.
New male and female members are welcome to join the club.
