A capacity crowd of approximately 75 people packed into Redruth
Royal British Legion on 18th April to see what turned out to be an
excellent evening of exhibition billiards. World No.7 Roxton Chapman
from Peterborough entertained the crowd with a fine display of quality
billiards. Three local billiard players had the honour of playing against
Roxton in the exhibition. They were Charlie Gay, Noel Meagor and
Dave White, who all played very well and contributed to a great night:
which included a pasty supper during the interval. The referee for the
evening, Mr. Ray Vassie, was presented with an award for his services
during the past three exhibitions. Roxton rounded off the evening with
an excellent display of trick shots, the masse in particular went down
well with the crowd. The billiards exhibition was arranged by Paul
Broad (Sports Sec) and David Grigg who was also MC for the night.
