The under 8s Whites had a surprise visitor to their training session on Friday night as boxing champion Marcus Morisson called in.
Fresh from his victory over Italian Emanuele Blandamura in Rome, crowning him WBC International silver middleweight champion, Marcus took the time to meet the players and take photographs. He even had a race against the team, putting his title on the line! (he won, just).
It was an inspiring visit for the players, meeting a champion sportsman and getting to hold the Stalybridge based boxer’s title belt.
