About Me

Sometime Roller Speed Skater with the South London Club and only got into rollerskating when i was 16 at Battersea park rink by accident with a bunch of mates on a Saturday night out at the Fun Fair and only went a second time because of the girls.

Used to have a couple of training partners called Bill Sharman and John Folley who made me work far harder than I wanted to but got me into the National Team on a few occassions.

Now retired and living in Staffordshire
