I played for Oulton Raiders from the age of 6 to 9 but left and joined Methley Warriors where I played until I was 11. Throughout these years from 6-10 I also captained my local football team Rothwell Juniors FC. From playing at Methley Warriors I joined back at Oulton Invaders at 12 years old, and played for them up until 16 years old. During my 4 years at Oulton I was selected for; Leeds service area, Castleford Tigers pre scholarship programme and Leeds Rhinos pre scholarship programme.
Whilst playing for the Invaders we had a very successful team winning; challenge cup, Leeds & District cup , yorkshire cup, Division 1 and premier division titles. After playing for Leeds Rhinos Scholarship from 14-16, I was selected for an England academy camp, but wasn’t selected the Australia tour. Also after scholarship, I signed for the Leeds Rhinos Academy on a 2 year deal, making my Leeds Rhinos first team debut against Wigan in 2017.
Following my 2 years I signed another extra year for the Academy, which I was selected to be captain for my Final Academy Year.
Making my Leeds Rhinos first team debut Vs Wigan Warriors. Being selected for England academy camps. Being selected as captain for the Leeds Rhinos Academy and getting to the academy Grand Final.
Throughout my years supporting and playing for the Rhinos, my role model has always been Rob Burrow. This is because I always thought that I related to him the most when on the pitch as we are both small players and played similar positions, then in scholarship and academy I learned a lot of skills and techniques from him to help whilst playing and in my future career.
BEST SPORTING MOMENT
My 3 best sporting moments are; training against the England RL first team at St Georges Park for the England Academy, making my first team debut for Leeds Rhinos and captaining the Leeds Rhinos Academy in a Grand Final.
