Plumbing or football? Striker faces important dilemma
Most men dream of becoming a professional footballer. Few manage to make that dream a reality. But Rory McAllister could be set to change all that, and could sacrifice a football career for his plumbing apprenticeship.
HVP Magazine report that McAllister, 24, a striker for Scottish side Brechin City, is being advised by his manager to put his football dreams on hold while he completes his plumbing apprenticeship, so he has a trade to fall back on.
John Sheran, the manager for Brechin City told STV Sport: “We think it would be a wise choice for Rory McAllister the player and Rory McAllister the person to develop his game while at the same time have a trade he can fall back on when he stops playing football.”
McAllister scored 19 goals for Brechin this season, leading the side to fourth place in Division 2, the third tier of Scottish football.
The former Inverness frontman has been linked with a move to SPL sides St Johnstone and St Mirren, with Port Vale also rumoured to be interested in securing the services of McAllister and bringing him south of the border.
McAllister reportedly hasn’t yet decided whether to follow his footballing dreams or pursue a career in plumbing and is set to make a decision in the next few weeks.
