''I have been playing football all my life, it has always been a big passion of mine. Playing every day as a young kid in the garden with my brother, through to playing at a very high level at school.


''I came to Israel 5 years ago with the thought of just achieving my undergraduate degree from Reichman University. Whilst studying, the startup culture really got to me and drove me to found my own start up called TOJA, which is live now both in Israel and the UK.

''I heard about Inter Aliyah through a friend, came a few times to the training sessions and really loved the dynamic and ethos of the team and those who I was playing with.


''I think the team stand for something great, bringing people who are new to Israel from all corners of the world for one common person. To play the game we all love and to be there as an extended family for our teammates. A great experience, one that has really elevated my time in Israel and allowed me to meet some amazing individuals.

''Last season I had the honor to captain Inter Aliyah White in our very first season as a team, which was a hugely enjoyable experience, so much so that I remain the captain for this season too.
