Edinburgh based Lochend Boxing Club has today secured a new 12 month deal with Personal injury claims specialist Watermans Accident Claims and Care for their continued support.
The affiliation with the club first started with the sponsorship of up-and-coming Lochend fighter, Lewis Benson ahead of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. This successful relationship then led into a wider partnership, which has helped to cement the club as one the country’s leading conveyor belts of boxing talent.
Over the past year the Club has helped in the production of a series of champions, including a Commonwealth Gold Medal for Josh Taylor, four separate Scottish senior wins as well as a number of youth and junior titles.
In addition, a number of the Lochend amateurs have now turned professional whilst remaining under the guidance of Lochend Boxing Club co-founder and Coach, Terry McCormack.
As well as the production and development of elite boxers the club also offers a number community initiatives including helping youngsters looking to try boxing and keep fit sessions for all ages and abilities.
Announcing the continued sponsorship deal, Watermans Managing Director, Scott Whyte, said, "It is a real privilege for Watermans to be associated with the Lochend "family" and we hope that with our support they will continue to produce champion boxers. Terry and the rest of the team have developed a fantastic community hub which offers something for all, from elite boxers to keep fit sessions for the local population. We hope to be part of their continued success for a long time to come."
Terry McCormack co-founder and Coach at Lochend Boxing Club commented: "I am delighted to have Watermans on board and committed to helping our club for another year. The deal will provide new kit and equipment for the boxer's and coaches and will also help finance renovations that we have planned for the gym. This continued support will allow us to provide first class facilities for not only our boxer's but our community fitness members, as well."
