I have been happily married forever to my very understanding wife Tracey and we are both so proud of our son Benjamin who is currently studying hard at university.
I play golf and tennis very badly and have been a fan of Manchester City since the age of 6 , following them through the good and bad times. The overhead kick in 1976 League Cup Final by Dennis Tueart was a truly memorable moment for an 8 year old.
I love adventure, culture and the cinema. Not to be found lying on a beach for hours on holiday, I regularly drag my long suffering family around castles and ruins.
In 2014 I completed the 3 peaks challenge in under 22 hours and in my teenage years I used to be a Modern Pentathlete.
