Supporting Tottenham Hotspur was never a choice for me, it was just a way of life for me as both my parents are avid Spurs supporters and I was exposed to them as early as I can remember.

Supporting Spurs from afar has been challenging, as I have never lived within the UK, instead growing up in South Africa and Qatar before moving to Australia as an inquisitive 18 year old.
Often the Spurs games were not televised and I relied heavily on newspaper reports as a child and in the early 2000’s the very slow and limited internet which was starting to emerge.

It took me a while to find out about OzSpurs, however once exposed to our fine group, I wanted to get more involved. I have been a member for about 4 years now, and joined the Committee as the Treasurer at the AGM in Melbourne 2016.

I think the foundations that OzSpurs is built on is fantastic and I love the fact that regardless of our background, age and gender – we are all united in our love and passion for the mighty Spurs. We can essentially walk into any of our Chapters across the country and have the ability to make new lasting friendships.

I feel very privileged to be involved with OzSpurs and be a part of your elected Committee. I look forward to many more good memories with a great bunch of people
