At Play

As a youngster Neil dreamed of becoming a professional footballer and to this day he retains a love of the game, supporting Birmingham City FC and citing Paul Gascoigne as a fantasy dinner guest. A man with a love of the outdoors, he enjoys mountain and road biking in his spare time; if you occasionally see Neil with a glazed expression he’s probably thinking of his recent honeymoon in The Maldives. Likes his food, enjoys good company and known for stealing Peter’s Kay’s best material.
