I used to play for Leigh Miners Rangers and after one of my games, I got invited to go down and train every Wednesday with Wigan Warriors.
This training was called ‘Futures’ and this led to an invitation to train every Saturday morning as well.
Many people were competing to get a scholarship and one Saturday after training, Darrell Goulding, Youth Coach, asked me to go to his office for a chat! I was very nervous but when I got offered a scholarship I was so happy.
I now train Monday and Wednesday evenings with Wigan and still play for Leigh Miners and train with them on Tuesday and Fridays. You might think that gives me a few days off but I also play for Leigh RUFC and I train with them on Thursday and Saturday! I love Rugby!!
