Years at Risborough:
1976 to 2004
First joined with Ken Sheppard as a nephew played in his team. Fairly soon joined the committee under Charles Avery as Chairman. When my son reached 7 teamed up with Les Carr to run that age group team. Became a referee so I could competently run the line. Stayed with the team as it progressed through the age groups and ended up as linesman for the reserves. Also managed the reserves for a while until we persuaded Derek Wallace to return. Spent many happy hours helping build the clubhouse and renovating and maintaining the club and grounds. Left as I moved my business to the Arabian gulf where I refereed many good matches including Rangers v Celtic.
Now retired and living the good life in Southern Spain. No Football but plenty of golf.
