Biography: The player dislikes playing away games in case he misses one of his programmes, he can often be found peeping in at peoples windows of standing outside Television shops trying to find out what's on. Gary is also well known for taking the (TV Times) into the dressing room and on the coach for the away games to plan out his Saturday evenings. The first time that Gary met (Percy) he thought he looked so much like Magnum that he spent all day trying to get his autograph.
Gary's other favourite sport is Snooker, he likes to think of himself as another (Alex Higgins), however Gary is to Snooker what (The Elephant Man) is to Mr Universe.
On the playing side he finished leading scorer last season for Bromsgrove Brookfield and his year he looks as though he means to end up that way for Chelmsley Town. Keep knocking them in Gary and the club may buy you a portable for Christmas????????

Source: Newspaper Report
Town were always to strong Kingswinford, and it resulted in Parker being floored in the penalty area, Jenkins scored from the spot kick. Kingswinford played a more defensive game till half time.
In the second half Karl Melvin soon added a second goal.
Town bought on their sub Parker going off injured, Thompson soon made his presence felt Jenkins, adding a third goal.
Town then missed several easy chances before O'Neill scored the best goal of the game after a good move involving Jenkins, Melvin and Rochford, leaving O'Neill clear to slip the ball through the keepers legs as he dived at O'Neills feet, this win keeps town in the top six, and they are still involved in three cups.
Home to Paget Rangers in the Challenge Cup replay, away to Henley in the Presidents Cup replay, and the Birmingham Junior Cup.
