“Getting the opportunity to play up in the mens team while still a junior gave me a lot of exposure across the country on a national basis.”
Currently working as PE teacher & still dedicated to this great game.
33 years later I am at this launch with players that have become my extended family. Just being in that environment on that day, that was dedicated to a man who has done so much for South London and the International Basketball community was completely overwhelming. Just to have that time to dedicate all my thoughts in remembering Jimmy is almost beyond words. Simply..
“Thank you Jimmy, indebted for life “
