Life before Stowe

I enjoyed 5 years at Exeter University, one of which was in Mazamet, France where I played First Class rugby and also played basketball for the town team. I captained the basketball team, played 1st XV rugby, 1st XI cricket, 2nd VI tennis, competed in the 400m hurdles for the university and was twice university decathlon champion. I spent 8 very enjoyable years at Winchester College. During this period I was player/coach to Winchester Men’s basketball club and had spells coaching Solent Suns Ladies National League, South West and England U15 school boys.
