Brechin City Striker Rory McAllister has been advised to complete his plumbing training before moving to another club.
Brechin City manager John Sheran has told STV sport that he feels that McAllister would be wise to complete his plumbing training before considering moving into football as a full time profession saying:
“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 is currently gaining interest from Scottish Premier League and Scottish Football League sides as well as English teams after scoring 19 goals for Brechin last season.
Many footballers have completed vocational training, like plumbing training, to improve their lives after football like Martin Butler, a former striker with over 450 appearances for Walsall, Cambridge, Rotherham and Grimsby. Martin undertook plumbing training once his football career ended, he then went on to set up his own business stating “We started the business at probably the worst possible time with the way the economy was going, but so far we are doing okay”
Former Leeds United and Arsenal defender Andy Linighan also took plumbing training early in his football career and has been working as a plumber since he left the game in 2000.
If like these professional footballers you are considering a successful career plumbing training is always a good option to take we have also developed our own “new start up support” which helps our trainees set up their own business or get a job.
