I was born in Rochdale and moved to Bristol in 1973 to do a Social Science Degree and went on to Exeter for my Teacher Training. I have taught Humanities at 2 large South Bristol Comprehensives – Hartcliffe and Hengrove.
I have had a passion for football from a very early age and joined Bristol City’s Centre of Excellence as a Coach. I became Head of Education and Welfare in 1998 when the club became an Academy, I am currently Head of Welfare and volunteer 1 day a week at Weston’s Citizens Advice Bureau. I have been a Governor at Priory since 2012.
