Alexander, known as ‘AJ’, is a young Cornishman who was educated at Newquay Tretherras School.

Taking up the game aged six, he played for Perranporth from Mini to Junior level, where he appreciated the support given him by his coach Shane Tellam and his dad Steve.

Attending Truro College, a great experience was when he competed in their team at the Japan World Sanix Tournament in 2016. Marek Churcher helped with his development both at college and during time at Exeter Chiefs, when he served an apprenticeship.

A highlight when representing Exeter Chiefs under 18s was making his debut for them against Bristol in the ‘A’ League in December 2016, whilst he made his debut for the Cornish Pirates against the Chiefs in a pre-season match played at Sandy Park in 2017.

AJ is an exciting prospect who in his first two seasons with the Pirates made 17 appearances besides enjoying regular game time developing at Redruth. He certainly took his chances for the Pirates nearing the end of the 2018/19 season, when looking quite at home he scored three tries in the Championship. Also, of no surprise, at the end of season Dinner-Awards evening he was presented with the club’s ‘Most Improved Player’ trophy.
