Ambitions: To continue to enjoy my football with BayCity Strollers and not make too much of a fool of myself.  To spend lots of time with my extended family, especially Sue, and to give them all the love and attention that they deserve.        

Strangest experience:  In a pub in Weston-on- the-Green when Prince Charles walked in and stood next to me at the bar.  He ordered drinks for his enormous bodyguards, but didn't pay - Royalty never carry money.  No, he didn't buy me a drink!!

Best sporting experiences:  Cricket - Scoring my one and only century, taking 5 wickets in an innings and a hat-trick with my very gentle leg breaks.  Football - Scoring a goal with my left foot from outside the box. Rugby: displacing a regular County player from my U19 Colts team, while still only 17.

Best things about BayCity Strollers:  The incredible camaraderie.  The easy way in which I was accepted into the club.  The fact that I am still able to play football, albeit badly, at my advanced age.  Long may it continue.
