  6. When I was speaking to the USA Britannia Cup Captain on Monday after the match between Ireland and USA- Padg Bolton, he asked me if I knew a friend of his in the States who emigrated from Ireland over 30 years ago. His name is Wilson Campbell. Of course I knew him quite well. Wilson came from Bangor Northern Ireland and was a leading junior in Ireland, where tennis is played on an all Ireland basis of course. He qualified after a playoff with Des Hill to represent Ireland at junior Wimbledon. That must have been in the late 60s. Subsequently he became a fine senior player and was particularly noted for his doubles play, his partner being a very talented player called Ollie Swain.
    Wilson has a sister called Susan, still living in NI I think.
