“Hockey is a constantly evolving game, it’s very fast and it’s hugely down to teamwork and how you can work together. I didn’t make sport my career in a very traditional way. A lot of people are targeted at universities but I got into playing professionally later.“
Travelling with Starling
Sarah opened her Starling account in January 2019 after hearing about it from a friend. “I couldn’t believe how easy the whole process was - it’s normally so painful,” she says. Since then she has played in Australia, New Zealand, China and Spain. With Starling, we won’t block your card when you use it in a new country and we won’t charge you any fees for using your card overseas or withdrawing cash. The days of having to inform your bank when you’re away are over - it works perfectly for someone who’s in Germany one week and Holland the next.
Budgeting with Starling
Sarah started using Starling for her overseas matches but now uses it for her everyday money management back in the UK. “I really like the way it breaks everything into categories and tells you how much you’ve spent daily; it makes everything very clear. I also like that if you want to make a payment, you can flick between the screens of your Starling app and the text where your friend’s account details are.”
