Why I play wheelchair rugby?

Prior to the onset of MND, sport featured heavily in my life. I have always enjoyed testing myself and competing with others in a physically challenging team sporting environment. Becoming part of the LTWRC family has given me an outlet that might otherwise not exist.

Background/ other interests outside of sport:

Outside of sport my focus revolves very much around my young children, wife and friends.

Favourite Sporting Moment:

There have been many and hopefully there will be many more to come. All involve the major Leicestershire sporting teams. Most of them Tigers successes, but one that always sticks in my memory is the LCFC FA Cup 5th round game against Shrewsbury Town. It was a game from a more impressive footballing era. A game that had everything and was perhaps the moment where I fell in love with team sport.

Proudest Sporting Moment:

Again there haver been many. The 162 N.O. For Cosby Cricket Club perhaps tops that list.
