| Len Hurst Passes Away|
One of the most popular wrestlers of the Heritage Years has passed away at his home in Jamaica. Lennie's family have been in touch and told us that he died on 21st October. Born in Jamaica Hurst came to Britain as a teenager and joined the YMCA to pursue his interest in weightlifting. It was here that he became interested in wrestling and joined the United Amateur Wrestling Club to develop his amateur wrestling skill. When he considered himself ready Len chose to follow a rapid career and was subsequently taken on as a professional by Dale Martin Promotions. Having made his debut in the winter of 1965, aged twenty-one, it didn't take long for Len Hurst to achieve national popularity through his regular television appearances. Making his tv debut in 1967 he was an immediate success and featured regularly over the next fifteen years.
