does anybody remember the bantaskin boxing club in the butney.this would be early to late fifties. john[cowboy ]mccormack boxed there. he was the british and european middleweight champion. remember him boxing and beating terry downs. his mother lived right across the street next to the bantaskin bar.the club later became carney's the bookie, which was run my the mcmanus family. one of the brothers also played for maryhill harp, which i also played for in 1962, later it was disbandoned when the pitch was used for housing.

Glasgow Transport was run by Blondie for years but it slowly lost people and he hardly charged anything (1 over 18s and 50p under). I went there for 3 years back around 1996 and I hear it shut down a few years later. Gary Jacobs, Drew Docherty and Paul Wier frequented the place and I trained with those guys more than a few times over the years. I have a picture of all three and Blondie.

I recently heard that Blondie passed away a couple years ago. He was an awesome manager and a cool guy.
