Olly will tell you he was the best captain of the Sunday Old Boys ever. He will also tell you he was the most influential player in the side. All of which is a bit of a worry as his full time job is serious sports reporting.
However, Olly was undoubtedly a major part of the club in the early years, his charges down the wings memorable, his crossing legendary, and his team talks and motivation always likely to raise a smile. Also responsible for ensuring that the Old Boys will never, ever, be allowed to hold a social in Crosslands again, Olly’s appearances on a Sunday became fewer after becoming a Dad and with the ever increasing demands of work. More recently seen on the evening BBC news bulletins, it is good to see that Olly has retained his sense of humour, as that can surely be the only excuse for his choice of tie.
