As a footballer Ian was a coaches dream. He had a fantastic attitude towards his football at both training and at games. He was always keen to learn and develop and was also very popular in the dressing room. Ian played a big part in the success the Shippy 19's & 21's enjoyed in his time at the club, especially the 21's League & League Cup double in season 05-06.
As a person Ian was a diamond and a credit to himself and his family.
It was a pleasure to have Ian at our club over the years but more importantly it was my priviledge to get to know Ian. He will be very sadly missed.
My thoughts are with Stevie and family.
