Players & Staff at The Cornish Pirates...
As the Cornish Pirates continued to strengthen their squad for the 2018-19 season, it was announced in April 2018 that centre Callum was joining from Ulster on a one-year contract.
Ballymena-born, he was educated at Ballymena Academy and then attended Harpers Adams University in Shropshire, when he played for Newport Salop and Shropshire.
Also a Ballymena player with a great work ethic, after finishing University Callum worked in agriculture for two years, played for Ulster A and was then rewarded in 2016 with a place in Ulster senior squad.
Besides rugby, Callum has represented Ulster and Ireland at youth level in tennis, and as a keen golfer is a member of Royal Portrush Golf Club.
Before his arrival, Cornish Pirates’ co-coach Gavin Cattle was looking forward to working with Callum, commenting:
Callum impressed when playing against us for Ulster A and we are looking forward to his arrival.
Experienced and able to play at both 12 or 13, he has also featured at fly-half in his youth, so will give us versatility across the backline.
