For his sins, Mark is a long-suffering Wycombe Wanderers' fan although he is suffering less this season at the moment!! When not weeping in the stands, he breeds pedigree cocker-spaniels of which he has now had over 30 pups through his home. Mark is married, with two children and a Bearded Dragon which is always a great conversation piece.
