About Ian

Ian lives in Ascot with his wife and two daughters. He is a keen Manchester City fan who remembers watching at Maine Road in the dark days of the 1980’s/1990’s before the current glories. He enjoys most sports, although this mainly involves watching them now. His claim to fame was being runner-up in TV quiz ‘Test the Nation’ in the 2004 series, but he has since retired to concentrate on social pub quizzes instead!
