Birth year: 1966 – born one of the famous Dawson clan.
Family: Wife (Kerry), Son (Joshua), Daughters (Isabella & Celena-Rose), cocker spaniel (Indie).
Occupation: Transport Manager of Eric Mattheeuws UK Ltd – a different puzzle to solve every day.
Nickname: Baldrick – from Black Adder – the lads at work noticed that one of my favorite sayings was “I have a cunning plan” so the nickname stuck.
Favourite team: Manchester United.
Favourite player of all time: So many names – Ronaldo, Scholes, Cantona, Keane, Robson, Macari and of course Maradona & Zidane, BUT if I had to name one, I always come back to Liam Brady, a midfield master when I was growing up – just a shame he played for Arsenal!
Hobbies/Interests: Football (playing & watching), tennis, tenpin bowling, music and playing the violin, 1000 piece puzzles, drinking Real Ale and of course, spending time with the family.
Ambitions: To play football for as long as possible, a BIG thank you to Terry Brown & Nigel Brett for persuading me to come up to BayCity Strollers.
Favourite Holiday: Santa Cruz, California – 3 times is not enough and I would stay there if I could. Really want to return to Ireland (only visited for the weekend following an invite to a wedding) as I’m a born fiddle player – enjoyed the Guinness too!
Other thoughts: for England football team to win the Euros or World Cup before I die – that’s the men’s senior team by the way….
