Notes from the field

I started playing hockey when I was 5 as my dad played, my brother also plays and currently represents Wales as well. I studied Sport & Exercise Science at Sheffield Hallam and am currently in the process of finishing my Masters in Sport Business at Cardiff Met, which I’ve been combining whilst playing club hockey out in the Netherlands with HC Tilburg. Away from the pitch I can be found catching up with mates, drinking coffee, watching sport and enjoying the sun (when possible in the UK).
