Lee Buck­man dipped un­der the hour mark as six Ash­ford Wheel­ers rode in the Kent CA 25-mile time trial on the Mo­lash course on Sun­day. Buck­man com­pleted the course in a time of 59min 49sec to fin­ish in 17th place over­all. Other times: Andy Bran­son 1:01.00, 22nd; Marvin Clay­don 1:02.35, 29th; Andy Robin­son 1:03.11, 32nd; John Hol­lidge 1:04.16; 39th; Ste­wart King punc­tured and did not fin­ish. Two young play­ers from an Ash­ford academy look set to be judo stars of the fu­ture. Daniel Brown and Char­lotte Nixon, from Judo Jim’s Judo Academy, have been busy col­lect­ing medals this year. Both won sil­ver in the Bri­tish Schools South­ern Area Cham­pi­onships which means they have au­to­mat­i­cally qual­i­fied for the Na­tional Bri­tish Schools Cham­pi­onships which are be­ing held in Sh­effield this month. The pair also took part in the Kent Closed cham­pi­onships in Dart­ford with Char­lotte, a pupil at Folke­stone School for Girls, claim­ing an­other sil­ver and Daniel, from the John Wal­lis Academy in Ash­ford, tak­ing a bronze. Se­nior club coach Jim Win­ter-Nolan said: “Both Daniel and Char­lotte fought hard for their medals and per­formed ad­mirably, en­dors­ing the hard work, dili­gence and ded­i­ca­tion they have both shown and put into their judo train­ing.” Judo Jim’s Judo Academy runs classes on Satur­days at South Ash­ford Youth Cen­tre, St Stephen’s Walk, Ash­ford.
