1. Tell us who you are outside of the club. What do you do, how would you describe yourself?
I work as a Research Assistant at UCL Respiratory. We are currently working on a clinical trial for a treatment for some forms of Lung Cancer. It sound more fancy than it is as I am pretty much lab bitch.
2. How did you end up at Merton FC?
Me and my friend Josh play 5-a-side with some of our other friends every Tuesday at Rock Lane in Barnes, we wanted to start also playing 11-a-side and so googled teams that were close to each of us. Merton looked the most professional; some teams just having a number posted!
3. What was your best moment in your MFC career till now?
Probably last week playing against the 6s in a close fought derby. It was great to come up against familiar faces and have a good game.

Arsenal. My favorite team and also the style of play is amazing and would be great to play in.

Eat porridge on game day, even though I really can’t stand it.

To help the team in any way, and also to keep playing well and to try and start scoring some goals!

In the Prem, annoyingly I think Costa.
