HOW interesting to read bout Frank Middleton and how marvellous to find that he is still going strong at the grand old age of 90.
I met him when I started work at the Royal Hallamshire in March, 1978. He was an engaging character with a fine sense of humour and a pleasure to work with. I would often volunteer to ride with him when his regular partner, Percy, was unavailable. It would guarantee an interesting day.
I knew of his interest in boxing, but not his relationship with Brendan Ingle, which is ironic, given that I live a stone’s throw from the Ingle gym and regularly see him and his boxers around.
Best wishes Frank. You haven’t changed a bit.
