1. Tell us who you are outside of the club. What do you do, how would you describe yourself?

I moved over to the UK from Australia about 18 months ago after graduating from university. I started on the graduate scheme at BT and now find myself working as a Product Manager for BT Sport. Outside of work, I am usually planning my next trip as I love to travel.

I had Mike Stone give Clappers my number after witnessing some magical skills at 5 a-side.

Scoring a very scrappy penalty in a shoot-out win over Bank of England in the cup.

Tottenham Hotspur – childhood team.

I usually like to get to the ground early (I don’t think this has happened once since I started getting a lift with Siri) and try to get my hands on one of the few medium sized jerseys.

Promotion back into Division 1.
