How long have you been playing for Northern Tigers?
This is my first season.
Which clubs have you previously played for?
I have previously played for Marconi, Blacktown City, Western Sydney Wanderers, APIA and Sutherland
What do you enjoy most about playing for Northern Tigers?
What I enjoy most is playing with the group of guys we have in First Grade. I have played at a lot of clubs but this is the most tight-knit and enjoyable bunch of boys to play with.
What position do you play? Have you always played there?
I play right back but I have also played centre back, left back, right wing and left wing!
What is your personal goal for this season?
My personal goal for the season is to start as many games as possible in First Grade and to play my best to help the club get promoted to NPL 1.
Do you have a favourite club/player? Who/why?
My favourite club is Liverpool and my favourite player is Steven Gerrard. The reason I support Liverpool is because the first game of football I watched was the 2005 champions league final and Steven Gerrard was one of the best players in that game.
What is your best football memory?
My best football memory was being selected in my first Joeys squad. It was a great experience and a part of my football life that I enjoyed a lot.
