So, Peter, what are you doing these days?
I have worked as a cover supervisor at my son's school, St Anselm's College, Wirral, for the last six months. If a teacher is off ill or on a course, I take the class. I have a sports science degree and am studying to get my teaching qualification. Previously, I had been a classroom assistant at a local primary school, which whetted my appetite for teaching, though I see myself in a secondary school.
What about your current sporting interests?
I also help out with PE at St Anselm's, which is a rugby school, and coach my youngest son's year seven team. I am also a level-two angling coach, and, five years ago, helped set up Birkenhead Park Junior Angling Club, and that also takes up a lot of my time. I got into angling towards the end of my football career.
What was it like to play for United?
Even though I was from Birkenhead, I was a United fan as a boy. I got awful stick at school as in my class there were 15 Evertonians, 15 Liverpool fans and me. It wasn't great when United were relegated to the Second Division (1973/74). But I came from a family of United fans. It was a boyhood dream to play for United, and the first time I pulled on the shirt was special. My debut was away to QPR on their plastic pitch, which was hardly ideal as the ball bounced miles into the air. I had a goal disallowed for offside.
Your first goal for United was scored in front of the Stretford End...
It was a penalty in a 4-0 win against Leicester, and what made it even more memorable is that I had family standing on the Stretford End.
