How long have you been playing for Northern Tigers?

This will be my second season with Tigers.

Who have been the been the biggest influences in your football career? 

I definitely have to mention my dad. I’ve never met a more passionate person when it comes to football. He has been playing his whole life and I know I have the same love for the game as he does. Throughout my footballing career he has always supported me and pushed me to do the best I possibly can do. And of course there have been a few coaches over the years who I am so grateful for all the time and effort they have put in to help me better myself.

Which clubs have you previously played for?

I started playing quite late, when I was 12 I joined a local club near my home which was called Kellyville Kolts. From there I went to Penrith Nepean for a couple of years and then to Koalas up until I came to play for Tigers last season.

What do you enjoy most about playing for Northern Tigers?

I love the friendliness of the club, and how it feels like a family. Everyone looks out for one another and I love the positive vibes. The girls have really made my time at Tigers the best and I thank the club for playing a big part in getting my confidence and passion in playing back again. Also a big thanks to Pat and Frank for inviting me to come to Tigers last season, it was a tough decision in moving clubs but one that I have never regretted making.

What position do you play? Have you always played there?

I play as a winger and have mostly been playing on the right side throughout this season. That has always been my position or as a striker.

What is your personal goal for this season?

To be more calm in front of goal and to score. I’m confident in all other areas, especially in crossing and setting up for other players but when I get the opportunity I want to be more confident in finishing.

Do you have a favourite club/player? 

I really enjoyed watching Sydney FC play in the recent season. They were very well structured, played the ball around well and looked dangerous in the final 3rd.

Also I’ve always been a big fan of Lionel Messi, his scoring abilities and footwork is incredible!

What is your best football memory? 

Being the minor premiers and grand final champions back in Under 16’s for Koalas. We had a great team and coach and worked hard for each other and got amazing results because of it.
