The club’s show at Lancaster & Morecambe College this Saturday, June 9, has been shelved as the season draws to a close.

Plenty of plans are in place for the coming months however with respected local coach Bob Howard set to officially join the team.

Howard coached Morecambe’s English and Commonwealth featherweight champion Isaac Lowe as both an amateur and a professional.
