Chance to meet Dick McTaggart

FANS of one of Scotland’s greatest ever boxers, Olympic champion, European Champion, Empire Games Champion, Commonwealth Games Champion, Forces Champion and many more, Dick McTaggart, will have the opportunity to meet their hero today (Friday).

He will be the guest of Arbroath Amateur Boxing Club founder member Doug Ford in the games room of the Arbroath branch of the Royal British Legion Scotland from about 11.30 a.m. And he will have on show some of his many trophies and medals.

Mr McTaggart will be guest of honour at the dinner and boxing show being held in the Legion’s function suit tonight to mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of Arbroath Amateur Boxing Club by the late Dave Ford and his brother, Doug.

Boxers from all over Scotland will travel to take part and a fantastic programme has been arranged.

However, if you do not already have a ticket then hard luck, as every one has already been sold for what promises to be a momentous event to mark the golden jubilee of a famous local club.
