Biography: Peter was a member of the Bournemouth Gaworks team that won the Hampshire Senior Cup in 1953/4. This contributed to him earning County honours and a contract with Bournemouth & Boscombe the following year. He played a key role in their promotion in 1961/2 but suffered a series of knee injuries in the years that followed and eventually had to retire as a result. Later worked as a painter and decorator, before emigrating to New Zealand in March 1967. Settling in Auckland, he had two spells as an aircraft technician with Air New Zealand either side of a year back in Bournemouth as a typewriter technician. He loved travelling, and spent much of his later life visiting locations including the US, Canada and Singapore with Mary. He later moved to Australia where he worked as a maintenance engineer until retiring in 1999, when he moved to Cabarita Beach, New South Wales. Died on December 30th 2014, aged 80.
