D.O.B.: 01/11/78

Weight: Prone to balancing issues after 6 pints and lingering hangovers!  Anywhere between 74-78kgs

Occupation: Self Employed Builder and Landlord
Playing Position:  Primary role is the spare wheel in the team, frequently used as a dummy runner or a shield. Oh and I am actually the water boy. I also drive the van when Howie is tired. I'm pretty important really!

Claim to Fame: Once gave  Alan Vessey a meter and a half head start whilst marking him at halfway, my next job was to get the ball out of our net . Once saved Chris from being beaten by GB U21 girls!

Nickname Explanation:-   Hmm, this is actually quite boring considering the potential for nicknames. Came from a victorious Dragon trip to Cup of the North in Canada. "Buzz" as in Buzz lightyear, either came from the rocket speed that I picked up snow boarding going from complete beginner on day 1 to Double Black Diamond Pro by day 5 (if it wasn't for the groin strain on day 1 this meteoric rise could possibly have been achieved by day 4.5)! Or, as a small minority in the team believe, the name came from the fact I was wearing body armour, which gave me the appearance of overly developed shoulders and a similar appearance to to Pixars' most loved character?
