Neil has a diverse bridge CV that includes winning most of Britain's major tournaments as well as representing England on several occasions.
Neil spends most of his time at the Ace of Clubs. His reputation as an outstanding teacher sees students from a wide area attend his lessons, seminars and supervised bridge sessions.
Neil tries to give back to bridge in many ways. He was Chairman of the Middlesex County Bridge Association for three years and has served on the English Bridge Union’s Laws and Ethics Committee.
Neil has recently had his first book published - 5 card Majors 2-over-1 and all that (available at the EBU shop or Amazon).
When not involved with his busy bridge schedule he enjoys spending time at home with his wife Anne (a successful bridge player in her own right with a Gold Medal to her name) and two children Nikki and Andy (when they are around!).
Crisis - what crisis? Everybody loves George, his calm and happy presence is noticeable to all. The only exception maybe when playing bridge with his life partner Sheila 😃!
Nothing is too much trouble - put up an extra table, taxi service to our elderly clientele, filling up the urn.....
He and Sheila are also a valued part of the team running the club's holiday weekends along with Neil and Jill.
Jill had been running the Ace of Clubs with Neil until she 'retired' at the end of 2014.
Missing the administrative element she enjoys helping the club from behind the scenes.
She has still been instrumental in organising and running the club's weekend breaks, Ace Holidays, twice a year with Neil.
Home life is with husband Terry and their Old English Sheepdog Tia. She has two grown up children.
