Aaron signs up to the Ulster Academy of Rugby

Aaron has signed an Ulster Academy Professional Rugby Playing Contract. His job will be as a professional rugby player. Training at the Kingspan Stadium using the facilities, including the state of the art 7000ft gymnasium and the 3G pitch, under the direction and guidance of Kieran Campbell. Aaron has worked really hard, demonstrating strategic, tactical, technical, physical and mental skills and is now being given the chance to live his dream. On training, this year Aaron has been getting up around 4am and doing hard gym sessions…. all this before coming into school to further his studies. Hopefully, Aaron will leave school with some formal qualifications just in case the rugby pathway does not work out. Just the other day I heard a story that after training Ulster and Ireland winger Tommy Bowe said to Aaron after early morning training, “Aaron fancy going for a coffee with the boys”. I’m sure Aaron was tempted but he replied, “I would love to but I have to rush back to school”. Surely an example of dedication and commit ent. We will be watching Ulster Rugby very closely and maybe next year you may have the opportunity to represent Ulster B team – The Ulster Ravens
