Profile 

I Joined Squash Wales after 24 years in the sports department within Bridgend Borough Council. Born and bread in Maesteg and  a life member of Maesteg Squash Club, having played there since its opening in 1979.

 

Being club champion for over 10 years and as captain of the team I got involved heavily on the playing/coaching/administration and officiating side of squash.

 

Currently a Level 3 Coach, World Referee and Senior Assessor. I am also Director of Referees for European Squash. I have been on the World Referee list since 2000 and have refereed over 35 major WSF/PSA/WSA
finals and represented Wales at three Commonwealth Games and various European Events.

 

In my younger days I also played representative cricket for both Wales and Glamorgan U25/2×11 and I currently take an active part in my local cricket team, Maesteg Celtic. Highs and lows on the cricket field include taking 4 wickets in an over – best figures of 8 for 29 scoring a hundred at St Helens –and being hit for 34 in an over during a Sunday Friendly (we still won the match though !!) something I am still reminded about even today.
