Gaffer Jr Is Born

photo2 Gaffer Jr Is Born

A new football fan entered the world yesterday. Christopher, aka Gaffer Jr., was born in Boca Raton. Weighing nine pounds six ounces, he’s a beautiful baby boy — the first boy for my wife and I. His three sisters are already cooing over him and will undoubtedly spoil him to bits over the coming years.

Both my wife and I are doing well and are ecstatic over the birth. Not sure if baby Christopher will end up being a Swansea City supporter like his father, but I’ll definitely try to sway him in that direction!
