Previously he has worked with the Gibraltar Football Team both with their senior squads and youth teams, and regularly works with triathletes, track and field athletes, hockey, and netball.
Work opportunities for sports therapists in Gibraltar have grown over the years, especially since Gibraltar was accepted into UEFA, with more teams requiring professional medical personnel. Gibraltar athletes regularly compete at International events, from European to World Championships, to Commonwealth Games, therefore the possibilities to travel with teams are always there. There are also a number of private sports injury clinics, which employ the bulk of therapists practising in Gibraltar.
