Brian Martin came to us initially in a voluntarily capacity after moving to Oxford with his son Billy. Hailing from Edinburgh, Brian used to visit the now defunct greyhound track at Powderhall with his late father at every opportunity and greyhound racing has been a passion of his since childhood. Such is his enthusiasm to be around and work with racing greyhouinds Brian approached Liz and Ivia a mutual friend asking if he could come along and walks dogs for us during the day free of charge and so takenwerewewith this attitude that we then went a step further and asked Brian to join us at Team Lilypad ..... to our delight he agreed and he has been with us since April of this year.
Brian is also a paid up member of the Lilypad Racing Club and has a racing greyhound of his own called AWAYDAY GENERAL as a tribute to the late mutual friend of ours Jeff James. Brian works here in a part-time capacity but at times its hard to keep him away as he will not miss many Sunday morning and the chance to walk the General and the Agents hounds. Just recently he has become part Owner of SUAVE JAGUAR , and is also a Member of the Suave Racing Club. Brian Martin (like most of those we have work with us) has quickly become not only a valued member of our team but alao a good friend to the Curtin family too..
