“From the moment that Jeff arrived at the venue, it was clear that not only was he very professional but he was undoubtedly a ‘Gentleman’. Jeff explained from the outset that he was here to make the night enjoyable for everyone and that he would do whatever we required of him, as long as he could go on before the comedian. As far as we are concerned his tales and anecdotes are as funny as any comedian! Our patrons enjoyed an insight into his world and laughed along with him as he recalled some of his less public escapades, in particular when accompanied by Kammy. Jeff made himself available to everyone on the night whether for a quick chat over a drink or for the endless requests for photo’s – nothing was too much trouble. It was clear that Jeff’s appeal stretches far beyond the locals from Hartlepool – he is on his way to becoming a National Treasure.” – Lee Thurman, Simple Leisure Ltd

“In my opinion I thought he was fantastic. A true gentleman, a great personality and a fountain of knowledge when it comes to anything football related. Wow, he really blew everyone away with his stat knowledge!! I also really appreciate him staying a bit later than planned for photos, videos and autographs – much appreciated.”
