I had an amazing 20-year ride and whilst it’s the end of a truly enjoyable period of my life, it equally signals the start of a really exciting new one.

My sincere, heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped, in any way, shape or form over those two glorious decades. I leave Team17 in great shape, but now is time for my own adventure.”
