Why Football?

I spent over six years competing in Tug of War (yes it is a real sport).  I competed at high level representing England at UK, European and World Championships winning golds along the way.  I also spent much of my youth competing in Judo.

I retired from tug of war this year and I wanted to participate in a sport that meant that I had to maintain and push my strength and fitness training regime but also had that team comradery.  A friend of mine convinced me to attend the rookie day which I really enjoyed.  At the first few training sessions it struck me how professional the training was with everyone taking it very seriously but the team were having so much fun at the same time.  A great balance.

Hopes for the year?

I’m really looking forward to contributing to a team that has already achieved so much and hope to get to a good enough standard to help them achieve even more.
