REPRESENTATIONS:

GARY JONES

REPRESENTATIONS

Gary Jones is a 'History maker' described as 'Captain fantastic' having enjoyed a football career many others would only dream of. He made a total of 632 appearances that included captaining Bradford City at Wembley stadium twice, the first of which was in the League Cup final despite the Bantams being the first fourth division side to ever reach an English major cup final.

 

In a 20 year career Gary played for a host of other clubs but is rightly described as one of Rochdale's greatest ever players  for whom he holds the all-time record for the most appearances (464).

 

As Bradford City captain he led the West Yorkshire side on one of the most amazing cup runs imaginable by beating Premier League sides Wigan, Arsenal and Aston Villa on the way to the 2013 League Cup final before defeat to Swansea. However Jones was to return to Wembley only months later to lift the League Two promotion play off final completing one of the most memorable seasons in the club's history.

 

Gary is today in regular demand for after dinner speaking events as well as a motivational speaker recounting tales that are simply remarkable.

Benito Carbone is a hero to many a football fan having played over 500 career games for some of the world’s biggest clubs.

 

But ask any Bradford City or Sheffield Wednesday fan about the majestic Italian they will describe him as a living ‘Legend’!

 

Benito or ‘Benny’ as he was well known lit up the Premiership in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s and deserves to be mentioned alongside the likes of Patrik Berger, Gianfranco Zola and Fabrizio Ravanelli as players who helped make the Premier League (as it is now called) the global phenomenon it is today.

 

Well known for his mazy, skilful runs and wonder strikes from long range, Carbone enjoyed a wonderful playing career for over 20 years before turning his attention to coaching. He has managed a number of teams in Italy as well as a consultancy role at Leeds United.

PETER JACKSON

Peter Jackson is a born leader. A promotion winning captain and manager, businessman and cancer survivor. He is rightly described as a Legend at all of the clubs he represented.

 

As one of the youngest captains to ever play for Bradford City he won two promotions with the Bantams, famously captaining their Championship winning side in 1985.

 

Peter also played for Newcastle United, Huddersfield Town, Chester City and Halifax Town, enjoying a strong rapport with most supporters and captained most of them including picking on many accolades as each clubs' player of the year awards.

 

As a manager he helped Huddersfield win the Division Three play-off in 2004, and he has also managed Lincoln City and Bradford City.

 

In May 1985, despite collecting the Division Three championship with Bradford City, the day was to turn into a nightmare when 56 spectators were killed in a horrendous fire whilst playing Lincoln City. As a measure of the man, Jackson was a regular at funerals of spectators in the weeks that followed.

 

Peter can regularly been seen back at his former clubs as part of their commercial operations as a raconteur and motivational speaker. As a larger than life personality he is a regular on radio and TV commentating on the beautiful game.

JAMIE LAWRENCE

JAMIE LAWRENCE. The title of Jamie Lawrence's autobiography tells a tale in itself. 'From Prison to the Premiership' suggests quite accurately that Jamie has lived a colourful life.

 

From growing up surrounded by gang culture in South London Jamie had two spells in prison before working his way up through the lower leagues of English football to star for Bradford City in the Premiership.

 

Having played for the Bantams at the top level, Jamie became a fans favourite for his never say die attitude, crunching tackles, mazy runs and of course his every changing colourful hair styles.

 

Jamie also played for a host of other clubs including Sunderland, Leicester and 24 times internationally for Jamaica.

 

As a successful fitness coach Jamie is now a personal coach to many of today's superstar footballers whilst running his own football academy, mentoring young people in their formative years.

 

Jamie is a regular on TV and radio and his tales from sharing prison cells with armed gangsters to playing against likes of Ronaldo, Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp are as good as they come.

DARREN TETLEY

Darren ‘TNT’ Tetley is a WBO European welterweight boxing champion with a professional record of 17 wins from 17 fights.

 

The charismatic and likeable Bradfordian hit the headlines after beating Mason Cartwright via technical knockout on a Josh Warrington undercard at Leeds United’s Elland Road stadium in the summer of 2018.

 

There is now no stopping the 24-year-old, who quite rightly is aiming for the very top!

 

Despite leaving school at 15 years of age, because in his words he was ‘always in fights’, Darren turned his attention to channeling his natural aggression into a positive force.

 

“I remember watching Rocky IV as a kid and telling my mum and step dad that ‘I was going to do that!’. They just laughed but I was serious.

 

“When I started out however I was absolutely useless losing five of my first 10 fights but I improved and went on to win three national junior titles, a Three Nations gold and a Commonwealth Youth silver medal over in the Isle of Man.”

 

Darren is a brilliant after dinner speaker and motivational event guest who is able to convey exactly what sacrifices a professional boxer has to take every day of their lives and poignantly every time they step into the ring.

 

At FIVE NINE we believe all our clients have an obligation to give back to society and Darren is often asked to speak in schools on issues such as anti-bullying, healthy eating, discipline and being an underdog.

SAM BOATWRIGHT

SAM IS A GRUFF SPEAKING YORKSHIREMAN who would probably describe himself as just an ordinary bloke. That description could not be further from the truth. Sam Boatwright is an extraordinary individual.

 

An ‘Epic Runner’, Endurance adventurer, Fundraiser, Author and Motivational Speaker. He’s also a maths teacher by day and a former Marine.

 

The title of ‘Epic Runner’ was coined back in 2012, when he ran 50 miles every day for 50 days. But in his own words he’d ‘Been trying to outrun limitation and expectation, long before then.’

 

Leaving school with just a single GCSE, Sam spent the early part of his life in the armed forces. Nowadays however he combines his super human feats with life in the classroom as a teacher, inspiring young individuals to choose the right paths in life as he has seen many choose the wrong ones.

 

He is driven to share his message – to anyone facing a challenge, difficulty or their own self-doubt. His message is simple, ‘Anything is really possible.’ Sam is living proof of that.

 

In the Summer of 2017, Sam swapped the classroom for the open road and with a couple of pairs of trainers and a second-hand bike, covered 3,000 miles crossing America coast to coast in 32 days.

 

Running 50 miles one day and cycling 150 the next, the journey took him through 14 States and brought his fundraising total for Help for Heroes to £30,000. From running through a gangland standoff in New York City, to meeting a couple doing their shopping on lawnmowers! He ended with his own wedding in Las Vegas, the journey was epic in every way.

 

Sam’s fundraising continues and his appetite for a challenge grows. In February 2019 he is hoping to set a new world record by cycling  over 470 miles in 24 hours on a Wattbike (at an average of 20mph for every hour).
