What you didn't know about Stephen

Hobbies & Interests

Outside work, Stephen can be found on most weekends doing something involving sport.  Although his days playing football are behind him, Stephen’s love of the game is as strong as ever and as a long-time season ticket holder at West Ham United he gets to experience lows and the not quite so lows of a football fan.  He says remains optimistic that the highs are just around the corner.  Following West Ham to away games gives Stephen the opportunity to enjoy another of his pastimes, touring motorbiking.  In summer, this passion extends to regular tours to far flung parts of Europe. To keep fit and enjoy the experience of competitive sport, he is a regular at the gym, runs whenever possible and plays golf most weekends.
