Can you remember Dave short being floor manager ther. Michael franchise left and so did his brother who had the fish shop in Hebburn

Chicken welsh was never a professional boxer. He was an amateur. I know because I worked with him in palmers Hebburn. He was a good laugh. He would stare at people and they would be afraid. I never was as I knew him through my uncle Terry Mc Nally . Sadly missed
