A Photographic Memory

Who's counting the Ref? He was knocked down accidentally in this bout, no doubt much to the amusement of the crowd.

Sparring at the gym



Cliff works out on the punchball whilst Dad William watches with pride.


Dave Edwards writes:

I used to watch Cliff Lawrence and his brother sparing in the ring which was under the canteen at Silverwood. Me and a mate used to get in the ring and belt the crap out of each other just for fun . There wouldn't have been many mines with a boxing ring set up.

That brother would have been Ron Lawrence who was also a boxer.






On the program above are two boxers from Silverwood, Cliff Lawrence bottom left, and W. Lawton top left.

If you have a memory of Cliff or any other Silverwood boxer please send them in.


Many thanks to Steven Lawrence for sharing the photos above.
