I started as a secretary with Huntley & Palmers football club, then moved on to become a referee for 13 years, followed by becoming referees appointments secretary for the two local Reading football leagues and then the fixture secretary. I then took up photography for the Reading Evening Post taking football and cricket pictures until they ceased publication. During that time I also took wedding photographs. I then, with the help of Dave Wright, took the occasional football photograph for the Reading Chronicle, which I still do today. I also now take photographs for Reading City and Woodley Utd for their websites.
