I attended my first Halifax RLFC game at Thrum Hall in 1985 soon after moving into the area. It was a happy coincidence that within two years they had won both the challenge League Championship and the Challenge Cup. Success since then has proved comparatively elusive but I was hooked.
I did my first game for Radio Calderdale soon after the move to The Shay and it has been a pleasure to bring live and uninterupted commentary together with my colleagues.
My love of sport extends to horse racing and, from the other code, I follow Old Crossleyans RUFC. I have also endured in equal measure a fraught relationship with Huddersfield Town FC.
