Portadown youth rugby are very proud to announce a new addition to our team in the form of Ulster loose-head prop Paddy McAllister. Paddy will hold the honorary position of youth ambassador including mini rugby. When approached about the role Paddy accepted without hesitation and immediately asked how he could be involved.
Paddy is a loose-head prop who joined the Ulster squad on a development contract at the start of the 2010-11 season after impressing in club rugby with Ballynahinch. He went on to make 22 appearances in that season, including 10 starts.
The former Ireland Schools, U19 and U20 international has become a big favourite with the crowd at Ravenhill. His ball carrying ability is a major asset to the team and despite his tender age he has shown he can compete with far more experienced players in the scrum.
Currently recovering from a serious knee injury he shows an exemplary attitude and is undoubtedly an exceptional role model for young players.
Last weekend he had the opportunity to come down to the club and meet coaches, players and sample a typical Saturday morning at Chambers park.
