Williams’ pace lands him a prize

WISBECH skipper James Williams has won the Sky TV Cricket AM speed gun challenge for the fastest amateur bowler in the country.

Williams was recorded at 74mph when he took part in this area’s competition and admitted: “I was little surprised that I won it with 74mph as previous winners have been over 80. It is a nice achievement and good to get Wisbech Town promoted on national television.”

Williams’ prize is the chance to bowl against two England Test cricketers in the nets later this season which will be shown on Cricket AM.
