After being introduced to the wonder of Wednesday by his Grandfather as a small boy Sean is now on his 36th season ticket having “enjoyed” his first season under Len Ashurst in 1976.

Brought up initially in Upperthorpe and subsequently on the South side of town in Norton Lees he went to the now defunct Rowlinson Comprehensive before even the distraction of five years in London whilst at University failed to dislodge the love for the club.

Having moved to the capital at the beginning of the apocryphal 1983/84 season, in a forerunner to the advent of BeastieNav, he once memorably travelled to Southampton away via Sheffield (from London). Periods of indoctrination for first his Manchester-born wife, Jane, and then his son, Billy, followed and he is now heavily involved in the rebirth of the reformed Wednesday Cricket Club.

In a meandering career Sean has been employed by Robert Maxwell, Monty Don and William Hill. However, for the past 21 years he has worked within and across the NHS as an anti-apparatchik appartchick!
