Re: St Kildas boxing club Jarrow.
In 1957-8-9 I did gymnastics at St Kildas Hall on a Sundays under Jock Byers (Boys) and Monica Rutherford (Girls) for a few years. Jimmy Wilson & a lad called Stirling both went on to better things in that profession.
I remember the Boxing and Judo classes, some run under Joe Metcalfe who also did swimming lessons in Jarrow baths. There was also Badmanton & Table tennis at County championship level.
