Unveiling of the Brendan Ingle Plaque

Friday the 4th of October was a special day in Sheffield with the official unveiling of the Brendan Ingle plaque outside the famous Ingle boxing gym. Lots of familiar faces gathered on Newman Road, Wincobank, who’s lives have been heavily impacted by Brendan’s positive life philosophies and selfless actions. Amongst those were the likes of former world champion, now Sky Sports presenter Johnny Nelson, professional boxer Kid Galahad, and Sheffield musician Shaun Doane. It was a family occasion with Alma, Dominic, Bridget, Tara and John all present. The cast Iron plaque is a modest installation on the foot of the entrance to the boxing gym, where the ‘Ingle Way’ will eventually begin. (You can find out more about this just a few clicks over from our blog on this website. ) The modest plaque has been funded by generous donations from both football clubs Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United, Parsons Cross Boxing Gym, Matchroom Boxing as well as a number of private donations. The plaque is just a small gesture in a very big picture for the community. With plans to develop the outside playground in the near future, the foundation is increasing the use of this outside space more and more through it’s various projects in sport and physical activities. There wouldn’t be a more suitable way to honour Brendan Ingle’s memory. An ode to his legacy.
