Captaining the 1st XI in the Club’s first ever Notts Alliance fixture after moving from South Notts Village League back in 1994 (I think).

Captaining the 2nd XI to the Knock Out Cup Final victory played at The Strand. (Think it was 1983).

What does ACC mean to you: The Strand has always been a massive part of my life both from a sporting perspective and a social one. Many fantastic memories have been made and amazing times had by all, both on and off the field. I would say ACC has very much been a ‘Second Home’ for me for many years.
