Apprentice chooses plumbing over football and the SPL
A month ago, Train4TradeSkills News wrote about Rory McAllister, the 24 year old Brechin City striker who was torn between continuing his plumbing apprenticeship and going full-time as a professional footballer. And against all the odds, plumbing won.
McAllister has scored 63 goals for Brechin in the last two seasons, and his performances saw SPL sides St Johnstone, Hibs, Aberdeen and clubs south of the border like Charlton and Port Vale were interested in securing his services.
But McAllister has opted for plumbing instead, and joined Peterhead, who are in the league below Brechin after getting relegated last season and dropping down to the fourth tier of Scottish Football, the Scottish Third Division.
McAllister said in a statement, “Full-time football may come in the future but once I decided to stay part-time I wanted to join Peterhead.”
What do you think? Would you have chosen plumbing over a career in football and the SPL?
