Spencer joined the Old Boys in 2009-10 through his workmate Neil Clark, and quickly established himself as a regular in the Old Boys Reserve side, as well as breaking into the 1sts on a few occasions. Such was his joy at joining such a prestigious club, he quickly volunteered to take on the Reserve team captaincy the following season (nothing to do with him being absent from the AGM and therefore unable to object to his nomination). Spence took on the role with his own style and gusto, confusing the team and opponents alike with his Americanisms.
Never the shy or retiring type, Spence also introduced the club to his own take on fashion, including some never-to-be-forgotten salmon pink trousers, a hairstyle which changed weekly, and one of the finest beards ever seen. While some players enjoyed being cheered on by their WAGs, Spencer broke new ground by having his wife, daughter, dog and Mum watch him at a game. Sadly the pull of home has taken our Spence back stateside…gone but not forgotten.
