Che Stadhart

More than aware of the difficulties of juggling work and playing football throughout these levels, Che has successfully managed this conflict over the years and negotiated his way through many frustrating situations around this, such as the time he was owed nine weeks in wages by a particular club, greatly impacting his personal life, with no advice available on how he was to ever get this money owed.

Approaching the later part of his career, and reflecting on the all he had experienced, Che was not only aware of the enjoyable aspects, he also considered the problems, such as the extended period of playing without wages, and wondered if or how, he could use his experiences to help some of the younger players he found himself playing with. The opportunity to join the ASPSU team was therefore one which was an ideal fit and one which Che looks forward to contributing to, as the Union goes from strength to strength.
