Queen I Want To Break Free


You know that really annoying kid in school that was in every sports team, that’s Ricky!

A huge sports enthusiast who now spends Saturday mornings voicing his sporting opinions and sharing his knowledge. Having previously played for Bristol City and then Bristol Rovers, (not that he likes to mention it) Ricky would always feel more comfortable in blue! But when he wasn’t in a Football kit, a Basketball jersey was the next best thing. 

Bristol born and bred (not that you  can tell just by listening mind) but Ricky is well travelled, Spending 5 years (on and off) coaching Soccer in America, following England’s Rugby and Football teams to World Cups in New Zealand and Brazil respectively and completing a charity cycle challenge through Northern India to name but a few travelling destinations. Basically he’s a sports geek. 

Ricky is often found running on the streets of Bristol or working out in the gym, usually training for an upcoming charity event which he is very passionate about; very rarely will he shirk a challenge for charity. Ricky’s dream would be to own a big house… with a big garden… filled with Penguins. Family and close friends are never far away, his two best friends (who are both female) probably wouldn't hesitate at sharing some embarrassing stories, so err, we’re off to track them down!
