WHERE ARE THEY NOW : DAVE WATSON
Tuesday 07 March 1995
Watson Snr retired a year later. A one-time farm labourer who turned to football after being made redundant as an electrician, he has since established a successful career as a business consultant, introducing firms to potential clients. "When I was in Manchester, I used to arrange tickets for people and make introductions and I realised it was something I was good at," he said.
Recently he has added a new and rapidly-expanding dimension to his work, producing historical wall charts in conjunction with sports sponsors. "They can show the history of a sport, or of an event itself. We did one, for example, with Castrol, for the Formula One Grand Prix series, producing 650,000 charts," he said.
"There is a lot of work involved but it suits me because I love to be busy. Accuracy is paramount, of course. I'm a stickler for detail and I employ a full-time researcher who checks everything 13 times."
Now 48, he lives in Nottingham, his home town, with his wife, Penny, who is practice manager for a law firm, and 17-year-old daughter, Gemma, the youngest of three children. The family are members of St Giles Church, in West Bridgford.
