“I am thrilled to have an opportunity to start and develop a club of my own while working with some great people. It’s always been a goal of mine. I am passionate about the game and thrive on working with players to increase their skill, understanding of the game, and overall love for the sport.

The game has provided so much positivity in my life and I hope Gunners SC can be a place where others feel the same.”
