Disability: Spondylolisthesis and nerve damage to left side

Lives: Oakham

I have only been playing for the Phantoms since March 2017, and I found this sport by accident. I happened to be in the right place at the right time, by meeting a few of the club members at a promo event in my local Tescos. After just two training sessions I was playing in the clubs opening league game of the 2017 season !

They all seem to be good guys, and hopefully a good laugh with like-minded people, so I went along to give it a go.

I missed exercising and I have always enjoyed being active and refuse to let my disabilities get in the way of my life.

On the ice, we are all equal and I love getting in there and giving it my all.
