A nice man, very similar to Sinbad the window cleaner from Brookside.

Having spotted him outside his hotel, I went up to him and said, "Good Morning".

He smiled, raised his eyebrow and replied, "Good Morning".

We shook hands and I walked off.

Other than various Stranglers at post-Hugh record-signing things, I can only think of David Sutton (ran David Sutton Motorport, which became Audi Sport UK while the quattros were rallying), David Llewellyn (once an Audi rally driver), Chris Coburn (head of Coburn Improvements, who did the rally development for DTV), Barrie "Whizzo" Williams (racing driver) and Paddy Hopkirk. Oh, and I once phoned Blydenstein Racing and Bill himself picked the phone up.

All together now..... "Who?"

I just suddenly realised that the teams we play against in Wheelchair Rugby contain Team GB players and are famous. I've played against and had cake with Aaron Phipps, Steve Brown (Team GB Captain 2012), our coach Luke White, amongst a few, plus the Invictus Squad and one of them is our player Ben Steele :grin: :grin: :grin:
