I’ve been playing hockey since the age of 5 years old. My parents were both good hockey players, my father played for the England U23 team and my mother for a provincial team in South Africa. I’ve been playing at HC Den Bosch since 2009, the only club I have ever played at in The Netherlands. I have been the captain of Heren1 since 2012. My training motto is “the only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary”. In other words, unless you train hard you won’t achieve anything.
