The owner and partner of John Stubbs Sports in St John Street
Three things I like:
Sport, football and being my own boss
Three things I don’t like:
Sunday drivers, people who think they’re something they’re not and being lied to
Born and bred:
I was born in Derby and grew up in Holbrook, near Belper with my mum and dad until I moved to Uttoxeter in 2011.
I live with my wife Di. We got married in August this year.
Work: We took over from John Stubbs at John Stubbs Sports at the beginning of September. I was working at Allen and Hunt before so it’s a big change for me but I’m really enjoying it.
It doesn’t feel like I’m at work and Di says I’ve taken to it like a duck to water so it looks like I’ve found my true calling.
I am best at: Remembering Derby County statistics, even from years ago.
My ideal holiday:
A permanent one, somewhere warm.
Steak and chips with peppercorn sauce.
Becoming my own boss.
Taking over the shop, I was inspired by Di and her belief in me that I could do it.
If you ruled the world:
I’d put a wage cap on professional sport.
Epitaph: “See you when I see you”.
