According to squash development officer Nick Taylor he has already spoken to Darwish who is supported by Head, a sports equipment company which also sponsors racquet ball and junior squash development in the Island.
‘Head have a certain number of spots when Karim is expected to work for them and they’re happy to free up one of them for him to come to the Island. Our idea is to bring him, plus another three top professionals over to Jersey when the new squash courts have been built,’ Harvey explained.
‘The plans have been drawn up and we hope planning permission will be given by the start of the New Year. So, all being well, in a year’s time he’ll be over here. I’ve spoken to him already and he says he’s more than pleased to come across.’
