Being on the pitch with teammates... When I step on the pitch there is absolutely nothing else to think about for the entire match except the game.

If you are going to Bingham, what are you most excited about?

This is the first time the team has been in an international tournament. Being part of the process to get us to this point in the teams history has been one of the most rewarding things anyone can do.

It got me back into shape. It's also helped me network with other teams and keep me active.
