Neil is an avid sports fan and now largely an “off the terraces” follower of Aston Villa Football Club. He also enjoys hacking his way around a golf course, sometimes in a military fashion (left, right, left, right)!
Very family oriented, Neil likes to relax by spending as much quality time as he can with his wife and two children. As for his spare time – “what spare time” is usually his reply!
