I am a 34 year old self-employed chauffeur. The Bees have played a huge part in my life since my first visit to Griffin Park in the late 70`s.

Brentford is a unique football club with tremendous, loyal supporters. In recent years football has evolved, often to the detriment of the smaller clubs. The supporters` voice and the role we play has also changed immensely. I am a firm believer in supporters trusts and was proud to play a part in Bees United`s inception. There are now some 50 trusts up and running in the UK, from Carlisle to Exeter via Manchester United and Aston Villa – it is the way forward!

It is vital that supporters` opinions are heard and their input recognised. I edit the Bees fanzine Hey Jude and am currently Chair of Brentford`s Independent Supporters` Association.

My role within Bees United is to involve all the Bees supporters groups, to encourage Bees supporters to get involved/play a part in Bees United`s future progress; and thus help to secure the future of our wonderful football club.
