    I've been at the wonderful Boots HC since 2000 and held various poisiton including Men's 1 Captain and Club Captain before handing over to Keith. I met my wife Katie at the club :-) and have made countless great friends! I've completed my Level 1 coaching award and Level 1 coaching award. I'm still playing for the Mens 1s despite my dire lack of pace!
