I have a love for the game of cricket and cherish some very fond memories of playing at Arundel for many representative and club XI’s. When I was asked to join the board, I jumped at the chance. It was an opportunity to help grow FACCC and give back some of the huge enjoyment I had during my playing days here. In my personal life I have a wonderful wife and 2 children, who love visiting the ground for different reasons (the kids to run about and visit the tea hut and my wife for a glass of vino!). I am a Health, Safety and Risk Management professional and in my spare time I like to play golf, watch sport and travel when I get a chance.
