I was born in Glasgow on 4th April 1944 where I still live. I am happily married to Maureen with whom I will be celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary in February 2017, We have three children, two girls and a boy who are all doing well in life and they have given us six lovely granddaughters. I have had a number of occupations starting with stockbroking, the police, Royal Mail and as a football historian with the Scottish Football Association before retiring. i also have two greyhounds to support.
I have scaled the heights in my life so far having reached the top of Ben Nevis, climbed all the stairs of the Scott Monument and when I bought a season ticket for my favourite football club Rangers I found my seat in the very back row of the Broomloan Road Stand!
