Aaron Armstrong, currently a year 11 pupil at Parkhall Integrated College, is making a name for himself in local rugby circles. Aaron is to be praised for his hard work and effort, along with his mum and dad for pushing and supporting him every step of the way.
Following his introduction to the sport in primary 1 by Randalstown RFC, Aaron played for Parkhall Integrated College’s teams in years 8 and 9 and then Ballymena RFC as an under-14, where they quickly identified his talent. Playing at the influential position of number 8, he was nominated for Ulster Development Trials in 2019. Despite a series of cuts to the squad and the interruption of Covid , Aaron has been selected for the final panel of 21 within the North Area Region.
This all suggests that Aaron has a bright future ahead of him in the sport but, more immediately, a very busy summer, when his age group in the Ulster squad will be training twice a week throughout July and August.
Parkhall Integrated College will obviously be following his career in the sport with great interest and wishes him all the best for the months and years ahead.
