Brand was elevated to the National Senior Men’s Squad in 2018, although he had to cut short a family holiday to Europe to link up with the group in early 2018.
Born in the Netherlands to a Dutch father and Australian-Chinese mother, Brand came to Australia as a three-year-old, with the family moving to Sydney’s northern beaches where he grew up. The Ryde-Hunters Hill product is a forward who was part of the Development Squad in 2017 and was added to the senior group having developed well during a strong year which also included scoring two goals as New South Wales won the Under-21 National Championships.
Brand, who cites Ryde-Hunters Hill’s 2015 triumph as a career highlight, currently studies a Bachelor of Commerce and Actuarial Studies at the University of New South Wales.
