Shane is a talented and confident young man who from a young age was committed
to playing football.
At an early age Shane developed a talent that was noticed
by several local clubs, and at 13 years of age was offered an opportunity
to spend six weeks with two English League clubs. This experience motivated
Shane to not only train hard, but to study hard too, learning to balance sport,
studies and maintain a healthy nutritional lifestyle.
Shane went on to represent
Western Australia several times as a youth player before eventually travelling
overseas and spending some time with Cambridge United.
Eventually, education brought him back to Perth and he completed his
Bachelor of Science (Sports and Football) in November 2015. He is currently
completing his Masters by research. Shane has also been a volunteer Practical
Sports Scientist at Perth Glory Youth and a Performance Analyst for
Melbourne Victory and Perth Glory.
