Introduction I've been a fan of Derbyshire since 1967 and experienced the ups and downs with everyone else. I work for a major retailer and love my job, although wishing it was closer to Derby! I'm married to the gorgeous Sylvia, have been for 32 years and we have two great kids. There's Steve "Man Mountain", who is 26, 6'5" and a computer software engineer for a multi-national company. Then there's the lovely perky Rachel, who at 20 has the sunniest of all dispositions at any time of day. Not forgetting Wallace, the fox terrier, a quite wonderful dog! Please get in touch if you ever need a speaker for a cricket dinner or cricket society meeting. Contact me at peakfan36@yahoo dot co dot uk
Interests Derbyshire cricket and its history, Derby County, cricket history, after-dinner and public speaking, writing, films, gardening, history, travel but most of all my family, including Wallace the Fox Terrier!

You moved the pot before the coffee stopped brewing. Do you smell the mountains or the burro?

Are you suggesting I keep pot in my house?
