    Email: bigbear1971@live.co.uk

    Club member since 1984, plying my trade at all levels within the club, coaching since 2005 within club and outside, introducing 2 ladies teams into club fold, National Champion Coach Boys U18 winning gold in 2014 with a team of lads who will always be Buccaneer Legends for what and how they achieved the national title. Took bronze in 2015 being called up to cover at late notice. Can play in all positions when called upon. Renowned for on and off pitch experience, like a good social and creator of the Wellow Badger and Van As short corner routines! Buccs has cemented life long memories and friendships of which I am ever grateful for the life skills imparted to me from the Legendary Ron Gray, Tony Sheppard and Paul Denning for looking after me when I was a youth player. Enjoy your hockey, do the club proud on and off the pitch and embrace loyalty to the team mates and friends that you will encounter.

    Having first joined Buccs in the 1980s I have never quite got the hang of shouting another club's name during the game. So having played for Redland, OBs, Isle of Wight and Peelers, I have returned to Buccs to make it easier on myself.
