How did you get into Hockey? "My Granddad used to sponsor the Nottingham Panthers since I was born and I loved the sport. I joined my first Ice Hockey team (Nottingham Vipers) when I was 15/16 but only spent a couple of months there due to me having to go through exams and very late training sessions. I started playing for the wolves in the season 14/15. My first full season was the 15/16 season and loved it ever since. Now I would choose Ball Hockey over ice Hockey any day of the week."
