My brother James Ross died of Cystic Fibrosis in September 1979 aged 21 and not sure but think he may have attended the Boxing Club but can't be 100% sure. But I do remember that my family donated an "Endeavour Trophy" to the club round about the same time in his memory.

Hi Steve, we remember you at the boxing club quite well. Your Dad helped with the training. We lived next door to you.
Best wishes to you all.

Hi, I'm Willz, William Bremner's son. I was wondering if you have any other pictures of him in boxing because, since he died, I can not get a hold of any. Thanks.

Hallo Willz. I hope you like the photos on this web site. Unfortunately I only have a couple of me in the ring .We also had individual photos taken in around 1977/78. On the back of the 1979 photo is the photographer’s name and address in Fearn. I think the photos were for the Ross-shire newspaper.

Hi Willz, I was in school with your Dad and remember him well. If you look at these two photos on this site you'll see one more of your Dad in a boxing one and another when he played in the School football team - picture #1030 and picture #558. They are from the years 1978 and 1977.

Hi, I remember the boxing club well - I used to go down with my brother Andrew and dad Lanny Fraser who used to help out. My brother fought twice I remember, tho' I was not allowed to because of my eyesight. The boxing tournaments away at Thurso and the like were really enjoyable with a really good atmosphere ...good days to be a kid in Invergordon. I now live in Grimsby, my home town, though will always look on Invergordon as my other home as I did all my schooling there.
