Interests and Hobbies
I'm a keen football fan and of sports in general, unfortunately now only as a spectator due to an ageing body!
I play golf at a local club to a reasonable standard with a handicap of 9.
I have two teenage sons who both play football and I enjoy watching them play.
I'm renovating a house which keeps me busy in the small amount of spare time I have.
