As was reported two weeks ago there was much discussion about then Brechin City Striker Rory McAllister who was urged by his manager to complete his plumbing course before deciding to move into full time football.
The Former Aberdeen youth football player has since decided to join Scottish Third Division team Peterhead on a part time basis in order for him to complete his plumbing course.
McAllister had gained much interest from Port Vale, Sheffield United, St Mirren, Hibernian and Aberdeen before deciding to join Peterhead
The 24-year-old striker, who has been capped for Scotland Under 21s, said that he only has one year left to complete his professional qualifications and become a certified plumber, which he felt was a “sensible option” as it gives him something to fall back on when his football career is over.
“I had other offers but I decided football wasn’t everything and I would complete my plumbing apprenticeship,” he told the newspaper.
Having joined Peterhead McAllister will be able to complete his plumbing course and gain his qualifications setting him up for a rewarding career after football.
