Neil, or Rodney as he liked to be known, came to college as a mature student. Mature by name, anything but by nature, the Bracknell boy has more tales to tell than a war veteran; of visiting the girls toilets, chasing Brunel students round Englefield Green, and prancing around behind the decks in Tommys Bar. Questioned on his sexuality after wearing white jeans and pink shirts, he did once claim he would sleep with Paul Weller, such was his admiration for the man.
On the pitch, he led the college 2nds to a mighty, trophy laden season, and his all action, committed style benefitted the Old Boys ranks. Rodney broke into the First XI in season 2003/4, after scoring a spectacular goal for the Reserves, however no-one told the then 1st team captain that the scissor volley was into his own net. Since those heady days, Rodney continued to put in hard working, passionate performances for the Reserves and scored goals (at both ends). His sporting achievements have continued in the pensioners triathlon world, and he continues to put in appearances at Old Boys socials.
