Sports News: The balls were out at Wimbledon last night when a disgruntled employee turned his line marking skills against his bosses and vandalised Centre Court.

Geoff Davies, 37, worked in the maintenance department of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club which host the Wimbledon Championship and are rushing to get ready for the start of the tournament on Monday.

Though already sacked for insubordination after calling officials ‘a bunch of pricks’, a more senior maintenance officer saw Davies walking across the forecourt and, unaware of the disciplinary action, ordered him to return to Centre Court and ‘get started with the line marking machine’.

It was then that Davies left his parting message to the Wimbledon authorities.

While it remains unclear as to whether charges will be bought against him, Davies remains defiant.

I only wish I’d had more time,” he said today from his home in Maidstone, Kent. “I’d have added a bit more detail to the shaft.”
