      Hi Granville

    I wondering if Jon Jo Irwin should be included in this list. He brought back a gold medal from the Common Wealth Games in the 90s and became feather weight British Champion which he defends to win out right.
    He now runs a charity working with disengaged young people in Mexbrough, Denaby and Conisbrough… contributing to the community that supported him
