Boys & Girls Clubs would like to congratulate Ben Nelson on winning the Jackie Maxwell Award 2018.
The Jackie Maxwell Award is reflective of the work, commitment and dedication of Jackie Maxwell – a respected, selfless voluntary worker, who touched the hearts of many both on and off the football pitch. He was also a highly esteemed soccer club manager and vice-president of Boys & Girls Clubs. Jackie’s passion was youth football and he encouraged young people to participate in all sports and to strive for success!
This year’s recipient of the award is Ben Nelson from Townland Boxing Club, Glenavy. Ben has been boxing with the club for eight years and has a very strong commitment to the sport. He has mentored and coached many younger boxers and over-seen many community projects within Townland Boxing Club.
Ben will use the Jackie Maxwell Award bursary to help assist with training, accommodation and travel costs for his upcoming boxing tournament ‘The Black Forest Cup’ in Germany. We would all like to wish Ben the best of luck in the competition.
The annual Competition held at Pegasus Boxing Club is an OPEN competition for both Boy and Girl boxers who are affiliated to IABA.
