FORMER STAR PLAYERS RETURNING TO THE GAME
Since Christmas, several former star youth players (now in their 30s and 40s) are returning to the fold. Justin Scott (Wton), Tony Machin (Burton), Mike Hammond (Wton) were all county youth champions in the 1980s and all have found that 'it all comes back to them' after just a few games of practice. Recently Tony Machin has twice beaten Mike Bradbury (4-2 and 2-1) and Mike Hammond has drawn 1-1 with Mike, so you never 'lose it'. Next birthday or Christmas, suggest that the wife or girlfriend buys you a 2nd hand box set and see how you get on.
