Trigg's first encounter with Phil was around 1990 as a minibus driver who was engaged to deliver some of us home after those evenings out when there was some reluctance among the side to be the nominated driver. He enjoyed being with the team and we were invited to dance at his 40th Birthday celebration in 1991. We asked him to join in and he proved to be a natural!
