A member of Stoke RFC from the age of six, Callum Oakden also spent two years at Stone RFC while attending Armiston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy in Stoke and is now studying at Brooksby Melton College after moving to the Tigers Academy in 2019/20.
He showed the value of perseverance in pursuing a place at the Tigers academy after failing to make the cut from his original trials but bouncing back to gain selection.
“I did feel I was getting better as a player so it was good to get in and I just want to keep improving,” he says.
