House fire in Winter Harbor – October 27, 2014
BASINGSTOKE, United Kingdom (AFP) – Chris Lewis’s journey from opening the bowling for England in the 1992 World Cup final to contemplating suicide and being convicted of drug smuggling has him feeling as ambitious as when he was a teenager, he has told AFP .The 51-year-old – who represented England over 80 times in Tests and one-day internationals – said it was fear over being penniless that drove him to smuggle £140 000 ($183 000) of cocaine in cans of fruit into England from St Lucia in 2008.He stood to earn £50 000 from the deal – instead he ended up serving six and a half years of a 13-year prison term.The engaging and lithe former all-rounder is presently touring with the play written by Dougie Blaxland (the pen name of former cricketer James Graham-Brown) about his life called The Long Walk Back.“Do you know, the funny thing is, I would suggest I am more ambitious and more optimistic than I have ever been in my life,” Lewis told AFP in an interview conducted at the Haymarket Theatre in Basingstoke.“This is a stage of my life I should have gone through in my 20s with a whole set of new experiences.“It is a place I have not been since I was a teenager … a place when that teenage boy was dreaming of being a cricketer.”The play, directed by Australian husband and wife Shane Morgan and Moira Hunt of the Bristol-based Roughhouse Theatre, has helped relight the fire within him.“It (the play) all comes together from an idea of how we have reached here when less than a decade ago I was sat in a prison cell and my life was more than over,” Lewis said.It is a far cry from when Lewis, whose long-term girlfriend Patricia stayed loyal despite him putting her ‘through the wars’, and contemplated taking his own life on the first night he was incarcerated after his arrest.“You cannot get over the prospect of facing a sentence of 15 years,” he said. “If you have not been in jail it seems an unimaginable amount of time.“The question of ‘if this goes the wrong way what will you do’ and (suicide) was certainly something on the table.”Lewis, whose morale was greatly helped by former Surrey team-mate Jason Ratcliffe, who offered him help from the start, largely kept himself to himself in prison.“A strange thing that happened was sitting on my bed the night after the sentence had been passed and I cried and it got a lot of emotions out,” he said.“In terms of the cell … let us say if you like the fragrance of someone else – the toilet is right next to the bed – there are some people who may put up with that because they want company.“I was more the other way. I wanted to be on my own, having some control of one’s environment and keep your room a certain way.”There were certain rules that Lewis imposed on himself from the start of his jail term – neither listening to music nor telling his adored grandmother Eunice Joseph back in Guyana about his fall from grace.In the play, Lewis takes part in a question-and-answer session with the audience, fielding sometimes awkward enquiries.He says he is pleased by the play – which has included two prisons on its tour – because it explores the emotional side of his story and the battle he had to accept who was to blame for his predicament.
Ubong’s strike against ABS FC of Ilorin was adjudged the best goal of the match-day by online voters in a Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) poll and was presented the award on Wednesday by the Akwa Ibom and Cross River State FIRS Coordinator, Agu Bennet at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo.Elated by the recognition, Ubong said he had never won such an award in his career and was delighted that he was beginning to hit the limelight.He said he will share the prize money of N150,000 with the Children Development Centre on IBB Boulevard in Uyo which his club and players have been channeling their charity gestures as part of their community relations.“It is a great thing for me to win this award. I have never received an award like this in my playing career and I am happy that I am the one who has brought it to my club. It is great for me, my family, my teammates, the club and our fans and I am dedicating it to all of them because we are a family.“I will share the proceeds with the Children Development Centre near our camp here in Uyo. That is the only charity I know and that is where we as a club and team mates have been visiting to give support from time to time.“I love children and each time we go there, I remember when I was a child and my younger ones too. I feel very happy that I can personally bring something to them and I thank God for the opportunity. Many of us may have come from homes where our parents have the means to cater for us but when you consider the children at the centre, you are reminded that there are so many children among us who need support from members of the society to go through life. “Ubong who has five goals so far on record this season believes he has just opened a floodgate for more recognition for Akwa United.“I hope to keep scoring this season and I believe my team mates too will score such beautiful goals that will be so celebrated. I believe that Christian’s (Pyagbara) goal today will also win the Wonder Goal Award because it was something you can’t believe. I stood in awe of the effort, the gut and the delivery of that goal and I believe it will count as the best.”Akwa United played Wikki Tourists in a rescheduled Match-day 23 NPFL game at their Nest of Champions ground in Uyo.
