About us

Boxing and fitness are what Walsh calls “carrots that we dangle” in front of young people to encourage them to make an initial connection. Sport helps their personal development, teaching them discipline, respect and communication skills, boosting self-esteem and confidence. But that is only part of it.

The club has a massive web of links with local partners, including the local Crime Commissioner, schools, colleges, charities, foundations, governing bodies and local businesses, who help them address specific areas of local need. 

Over the last decade the Anfield North Liverpool Boxing Club has shown how sport can play a big part in meeting these problems head-on. Led by Founder and Secretary Alan Walsh (second left in the pic above), the club acts as a vibrant hub for a whole host of projects aimed at tackling local criminal activity.

The club is next to the famous Stanley Park, which separates the homes of Liverpool and Everton FC. It was launched 12 years ago in order to engage five local lads who were involved in knife crime. Now, the club and its partners work with over 300 young people every week.
