I entered the Jersey Open back in the early 90s when it was still a tour event.
I beat a guy from Southampton in the first round. I played a guy from Manchester in the second round and if I’d beaten him I was playing Eric Bristow in the following round. Unfortunately I lost 2-1.
I saw Eric at the bar later and said to him “Haw Eric, you’re lucky I didnae get through that second round or you would’ve got pumped”.
He replied “f**k off. You Welsh are all the same. All talk”.
I’ve never been so insulted in all my life.
