My Name is Tom Essex. I am 30 years old and a Sales Manager who lives in Amsterdam.  Football, golf, running and cycling are my main interests. I love travelling with my family, my girlfriend and my friends.  I have been to many amazing places already in my life and have plans to do much more.  My interest in sport came from my Dad who was a keen sportsman himself.  There aren’t many sports he doesn’t get involved in!  He was a very successful semi-professional footballer, playing for numerous non-leagues clubs from the late 1970’s to mid 1990: Burton Albion, Hednesford Town, Stafford Rangers to name a few He plays golf to a really good standard, is a good snooker player, loves tennis………I could go on! He is probably one of the most competitive people I know.  I have inherited that quality from him too!
