He was a plasterer I think? More money in that if you crack it.Damian Reeves is one of these anomolies - he used to make more money as a painter and decorator whilst combining playing for Altrincham and topping the goalscoring charts most years.
I find that really unambitious to be honest.
Disagree that you can outright label everyone that does that as unambitious. Reeves for example has his own business and has probably provided a stable life for his family while having the flexibility to take time off when he needs. Not to be sniffed at. He probably knew he'd only ever get to League 2....maybe League 1 at a stretch.
Reeves was a cracking player at Conference level for several seasons though, I'll give you that. We tried to sign him a few times I think.
