Provincial Player &Princess Coach

I grew up around an astro, watching my uncle Rob Pullen play and coach the national team. After spending some time playing mini hockey at primary school and realising that there should be nothing MINI about hockey, I eventually got my astro time when I went to Jeppe High School for Boys and got to experience what it was like to play for the Black and White.
I made the Jeppe 1st team at 16years old. Being coached by former SA captain Ryan Ravenscraft and assisted by Ricky Gay, my hockey went from strength to strength, making the SA U16 team in 2005 and being coached by one crazy Dave Wigget.
I have been playing in the Southern Gauteng Mens Premier league since U16, representing the province in all age groups and being coached by some of the top names in SA hockey. 
I am currently playing for Jeppe Old Boys (The Mighty Joes) who have consistently placed in the top 3 teams in Johannesburg over the past few seasons.
