    I've been at the wonderful Boots HC since 2000 and held various poisiton including Men's 1 Captain and Club Captain before handing over to Keith. I met my wife Katie at the club :-) and have made countless great friends! I've completed my Level 1 coaching award and Level 1 coaching award. I'm still playing for the Mens 1s despite my dire lack of pace!

    When I joined Boots there were only senior teams, within a year of being at the club I took on the task of forming the junior section and I have been actively involved since its inception in 2005. I have the pleasure of over seeing the fantastic junior section for children aged 6 - 14. I have an amazing group of volunteers who help me with various tasks such as admin, membership, coaching and team managers. (However please do get in touch if you would like to help) I pride myself on offering fun and inclusive hockey, ensuring all children have the skills and confidence to continue playing within the senior section of the club.

    In 2012 I also set up the mens Vets team .
    In 2014 I became the Membership Secretary and the Mens Rep for two years.
    In 2014/15, I captained the Mens 5s to promotion to Central League East Mids Prem.
