After World no.1 , James Wilstrop had been at mote on saturday and tunbridge wells sunday afternoon, the last stop of his tour of kent was bexley sunday night.
A sold out crowd crammed in to to 1st watch James and His father/coach, Malcolm give a group of bexley junior members some coaching followed by the main event of the evening where he would take on 2 of the best bexley could offer!
1st up to play 2 games against James was someone who will be hoping to be where James is a few years time was one of the top juniors in the world and bexley2 no.1 , Richie Fallows. James put Richie through the mill but Richie held his own and showed his potential! Next up was yours truly and club head pro. James was 4-0 up in no time and i was dreading the worst! managed to get some sort of respectability back and lost 11-6. 2nd game started the same with James sending me the wrong way anytime i hit the ball to the front. His foot came off the gas i managed to get to 10-9 up! 30 seconds later James had won 12-10! for the 5th and final game it was 2 against 1.
We thought this maight be our only chance but even with 2 of us James still managed to win 11-8. As punishment for losing myself and Richie had to do 20 sprints much to the crowds pleasure!
James then kindly did a question and answer sesion before signing copies of his book for evenryone that attended.
great night, thanks to everyone that turned up, to James, Malcolm, Mick and Claudia and Alan for getting the ball rolling!
