A popular boxing show which has raised money for charity, and is a calender highlight will not run this year because of a hall let dispute.

Kilsyth based Golden Gloves Boxing Club were due to have their annual boxing show during the Easter break. The club have held the show at Kilsyth Academy for the best part of a decade, but were told that the event would conflict with prelim exams and would have to be rescheduled to another date.

The club were hoping to host the event in November but the school again notified them that exams will also run during this time.

They were offered a date in December but have decided that it would conflict with everything else going on during the festive season.
