Been playing for Crash since I was 15, joining the club at its very first session in October 2008. Despite leaving the club in 2013 for a short stint at Solent Sharks, I returned in 2015 to where I feel most at home.

Proud to be a Crash player but also proud to represent my country too, competing for Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby at 3 Europeans Championships and 1 Paralympics; London 2012.

Away from the court, I love to spend time with my girlfriend Charlotte. I'm also a passionate Liverpool FC supporter and try and see the red men as often as my training requirements permit.

Soon after joining the club in 2010 Ayaz was selected to represent GB at a tournament in Australia, after this tournament there were doubts about Ayaz's size and weight on the international scene. Ayaz carried on training and he helped Crash win their first ever league title in 2012 and made it back into the GB Elite team.

Since returning to the GB team Ayaz has become a double European Champion and represented GB at his first ever Paralympics in Rio 2016.

Away from Rugby Ayaz delivers inspirational speeches at schools and community events.
