Simon Mooney at the Repton Boxing Club
Contributing Photographer Simon Mooney sent this dynamic photoessay of the life of the Repton Boxing Club in Cheshire St, taken at a recent training session when we went along to interview Club Chairman David Robinson.
“I’d walked past and seen the sign, and I knew the popular history,” admitted Simon, “but what makes it for me are the people who are there. They are all serious athletes, from the young ones in training to the old timers coaching them, who were once great boxers. And what you are looking to capture are their moments of interaction, because that is what it is about – the teaching.”
