Club: Sheffield United
Assistant Secretary

I first remember my dad taking me to Bramall Lane for the game against Watford in 1971 which saw the Blades promoted to the top flight, and I’ve been hooked ever since.

I started commentating for SSC in the 1990’s having been invited by a good friend, Dave Selby. I’ve commentated on Blades matches across the country including Wembley and Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium, with the most exhilarating being the 2003 play-off semi at the Lane against Forest.

I’m an Energy Manager and father of two. In my spare time I enjoy playing sport, genealogy, walking in the Peak District and history books.
