Cheadle Hulme FC (many moons ago)

Favourite Village bar:

Company Director at a Telecoms firm.

Cricket is my summer sport, and also taking part in runs, triathlons, obstacle races, etc raising a bit of money for charity.
What else do you do to relax:
Don’t have too much time in between all my sporting activities, but love my holidays. Try and get away 3 or 4 times a year. Also a bit of a sci-fi geek. Love Dr Who, The Flash and Arrow. (and obviously spending time with my better half)

Preferred position (on the pitch!):
Describe your playing style:
I’m a trier and God loves a trier.
Premiership player your style most matches:
Per Mertesacker (purely for his lightening pace!)
What made you want to try VMFC out for the first time:
I hadn’t played 11 a side football for about 15 years, but I was enjoying weekly 5-a-side so much that I wanted to join a team. I love playing team sport and didn’t want to hide my sexuality within the team environment and changing rooms, etc. VMFC seemed like the perfect fit for me, local and accepting. As soon as I went down to the first training session, I knew I’d made the right choice, and after my first VMFC social I was absolutely convinced!
Why should new players join VMFC:
I would have to say that joining VMFC was one of the best things I have decided to do in a long long time. Not only do they make you feel extremely welcome no matter what your level of football skills are, I have also made so many new friends. Of course, playing on a Gay team means that there is also a lot of socialising. No matter what happens on the pitch, we love a good party. If anyone is thiking about joining. Stop thinking and just do it, you wont regret it.
