One of Whyalla’s ‘young guns’ in Bailey Jones is leaving us to go to Launceston to live with the Tasmanian side of his family for at least a few months – possibly for good.
As he was an important part of the Shamrocks 8-ball team last year he will be sorely missed, not only by his Whyalla family, but all members of the Harp ‘n’ Shamrocks club as well.
A few of the “boys” gathered to give him a send-off that he won’t forget in a hurry at the club recently and wished him the best of luck on his new adventure.
It wouldn’t surprise anyone to see him in Tasmanian state colours next year.
