Professor Brunskill's busy professional life is accompanied by an equally busy personal life. Much time is spent with his two children, but otherwise his major interests outside work are sporting. Professor Brunskill has always been a football player and he continues to play regularly, whilst maintaining his general fitness by running. When not playing football, Professor Brunskill can often be found spectating. As a Lancastrian he has been a lifelong supporter of Blackburn Rovers.
