Since early childhood, sport has been one of my passions. I have followed all the major sports, have played some and experienced joy and heartache in full measure. I could write a book of sporting highlights I have witnessed. From England's '66 world cup triumph to an unimportant five set table tennis thriller in the Bournemouth league.
So it was natural that sport would figure prominently in my retirement. The opportunity to attend sports events, watch the big matches on TV and to participate in more sport as a player. Some of my memories will appear in future posts.
