One Response to R.I.P. Billy Marshall

  • Eddie Copeland says:

    At our meeting today 3rd of February we held a minutes silence for Billy Marshall and Harry Gorton who have both passed on recently. The minutes silence was concluded with 10 bells the traditional boxers count. Both will be sadly missed. Our chaplain Brian Branch has penned the Manchester Ex Boxers prayer which is fitting for such occasions when we pay our respects to members who have passed on.
    The Manchester Ex Boxers Prayer;
    Lord, be in my corner at the end of the fight, when the last bell is o’er.
    Then heal my wounds and comfort me as you judge my life, raising my hand in victory and placing on my head the crown of eternal life.
    Through Jesus Christ our Lord!
    Amen

    Rest in peace Billy and Harry
