BEFORE he had even turned ten, Callum had claimed a second and third title in kickboxing having started aged six. He has a black belt in the sport.
That particular interest has filled up plenty of his time outside of College and he will be competing at a high level if his progress continues.
He has a strong commitment to the sport, even though he is also a very capable footballer, which led to playing for Darlington’s academy before the club’s financial problems hit.
His performances led to a trial and a deal until the end of the season with Hartlepool. After his release after that spell he returned to Hetton where he impressed in the Russell Foster League.
He has since enjoyed spells at both Sunderland and Middlesbrough before moving back into local football with Hetton Juniors in the Russell Foster Premier League. His manager, Chris Hughes, has described Callum as the ‘best right-back in the division’.
