I was a professional cricketer with Lancashire CCC as an opening bowler for 18 seasons, 1987-2004. I took just shy of 1000 wickets in all competitions, scored 2 hundreds, collected 8 winners and 5 runners up medals, and represented England 28 times, including Man of the Match on debut against the West Indies. It all happened far too quickly and I retired, knackered, aged 36.
I have completed levels I, II and III coaching awards, passed courses on Counselling and Management at University. I have worked with the fast bowlers at Lancashire, as coach and mentor, and currently look after the local Cricket Club and work as an associate trainer and speaker for Lane4. I've been painting and drawing most of my life, commercially since 1997.
