I now have an interest in your site as Dave Croll Featherweight boxer now resides in my nursing home and is sufferung from Dementia. Last year an article appeared in the Courier asking if anyone knew the whereabouts of Dave Croll. We answered the request and we now have in our possession a medal which he won when fighting Johnny Kidd in the early 60s at Shoreditch, We have arranged fot the Lord Provost of Dundee to present Davey with his medal on the 26th January at the home. Davey does not seem to talk much about his bosing days and therefore we do not have a lot if information. I know that he fought Terry Spinks on one occasion and I have details of his other fights but no more. Can anyone fill me in further.
