Good win for McKibbin in Dutch exhibition match

Aaron McKibbin Lignano 2014Aaron McKibbin came back from losing the first set to Max Van Amerongen to beat the Dutch player 3-1 in their exhibition match in Culemborg tonight. Kim Daybell was beaten 3-1 by Bas Hergelink and Billy Shilton lost by the same score to Jean-Paul Montanus.

Overall, GB head coach Greg Baker was satisfied with the players’ performances.

“Aaron started slowly but won comfortably after losing the first set,” said Baker. “Billy played very well against Montanus and was toe to toe with him while Kim just lacked a bit of match sharpness. Our hosts made us very welcome and the players can take the positives out of their matches in preparation for the European Championships next month.”
