Started playing Aussie Rules Football because: I spent a year in Australia where I watched a lot on TV and went to a game or two. I had a few kickabouts with mates whilst there but it was when I came home and stopped enjoying playing soccer that I looked up the nearest team to me which at that time was the Birmingham Bears. After a year I decided to try to set up a team in Wolverhampton and the Wolverines were born!
