Few people can match the football experiences and adventures of Neil, who has known all the peaks and troughs of the game. He played as a have-boots-will-travel winger for Chesterfield, Rotherham, Hartlepool, Scunthorpe, Aldershot, Barnsley, York City and Crewe.

He then set off on an equally hectic managerial career with Gainsborough Trinity, Burton Albion, Scarborough, Notts County, Torquay, Huddersfield, Plymouth, Oldham, Bury, Sheffield United, Crystal Palace, Queen’s Park Rangers and Leeds United.

A witty and wise Yorkshireman, he takes no prisoners with his tongue and holds audiences spellbound with his yarns about football at all levels. His longest spell at one club was the eight years that he enjoyed at Sheffield United, the club he supported as a boy. Guaranteed a laugh a minute when reminiscing on his extraordinary career.
