Outside of Work

A dedicated follower of sport, Steve would have Paul Gascoigne over for dinner, dazzle his guest with beans on toast and complete the evening with Match of the Day.

A man of culture, Steve admires Notre Dame and Stoke City FC in equal measure.

In 10 years time you may see Steve in the winners’ enclosure at Aintree, having finally fulfilled his ambition to own a (swift) racehorse.
