Alex Goes Back To School!

Alex Walmsley took time out of his busy schedule to pop into Sutton Oak CE Primary School to dish out careers advice, but not in the world of Rugby League.

Year 6 children are currently working on a project looking at the building trade, while Sutton Oak undergoes some redevelopment work and as part of that project are learning about the different construction careers on offer.

Alex has a degree in Quantity Surveying which he studied and completed before committing to a full time career in rugby league, despite having offers to turn professional while at University.

During the session he told children: “I felt it was important to plan for a future beyond rugby, as you never know in professional sport how long your playing career is going to be. I enjoyed maths at college and my uncle, who was a project manager, suggested looking at Quantity Surveying as a job.”

He completed the final year of his course while playing part-time with Batley Bulldogs and now has the qualification available to him to use, should he wish, when his time in the sport comes to an end … which we hope is obviously a long way off!
