Another of the small group of players still going into their 40s, Stuart made his WIFC bow back in 2005, and made intermittent cameo appearances for a few years, waiting until 2010 to become a full member of the squad following his excellent performances for the Vets team at that year’s Worldnet. Since then, more than one opponent has remarked on Stu’s uncanny resemblance to Dale Winton, but his height and versatility have become key ingredients in the team, as have his relentless comedy turns as he fine tunes his Strictly Come Dancing warm-up act on his WIFC team-mates.
