Hello all. I am Mark.
As suggested by my handle, I live and work in west wales, and can normally be found in Scarlet-land, where I work for a rather successful independent school, teaching Chemistry and doing a bit of soccer on the side at lunch, having also taught bits of maths, PSE etc. over the years. I am also Health and Safety officer for the school.
I am from East Essex originally, and moved down here for Uni from state grammar, where I studied for a Bsc, then Msc, then Ph.D, before grabbing a PGCE on the way out.
I first started supporting Wasps back in the mid-late 1990s. I used to do about 6-8 home games a season at AP, with 3-4 away games, plus soccer and England HQ games, but that was prior to my daughter being born in 2010. Nowadays 3-4 matches a year at home is the max, with 2-3 away depending- Bristol, Bath, Worcester, Sale and Glaws are where you are most likely to find me in terms of away games, whilst at home I rarely sit in the same seat twice.
I don't drive, but am fortunate that tend to go to matches with my Dad, who does, meaning I can train along the M4 and meet him from Essex if needed. He also pays for the tickets, so that makes him double hero. My daughter now accompanies us to some matches, whilst I have even dragged my Cardiff supporting wife along a couple of times. England Wales matches in my house are not always fun
