Nope - he did have one for years, but he's now left the pub trade. Last I heard (probably about a year ago) he was training to be a driving instructor, still in the Southport area. Rob has spoken to him more recently than me, so he might know a bit more.

Thats the pub, bit of a hole but not a bad pint, Ive been in southport about 4 years with the other lads ranging from 2 - 8 years. travel to all home games, most away games and all cup ties. Also recently spotted a van parked up with a boro sticker in the back window so im tempted to leave a note informing him that we are taking over the town lol

He was working as a driving instructor last I heard. Great character. Fantastic stories to tell.

wish i'd known i could have come to watch matches with you instead of having to put up with manx and scousers while the boro games were on

most of the time ended up just watching games at home they used to do my head in too much

Ah, the good old days when ex-players had two career paths. Pub landlord or open a sporting goods shop.

These days they are more likely to buy the brewery and an entire chain of shops with their spare change.
