Why and how the London Swans? A few friends playing with the swans drew me in. The culture of the club is why I’ve hung around.

Why Swannettes coach? Seeing the passion, energy and camaraderie the players and coaching staff brought to last season was inspiring. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of trying to go one better than last year!?


Best Swans memory? A dead heat between singing the song for the first time last year after beating the Hawks, and getting the Swans budgie smugglers out under Tower Bridge at last year’s boat party.

Best advice to a new Swannie? There’s not a more inclusive and welcoming footy club than the Swans. Throw yourself in to the community and you’ll immediately have a fantastic group of mates.


Day job? Software Delivery Consultant

Best London advice? Boris Bikes are London’s most underrated form of transport

Best pub? Do I have to say Simmons???

Fave Euro destination? Aeolian Islands in Sicily in Summer. Val d’Isere for an epic ski trip.
