Aaron played flanker in my younger days before making the move to hooker.
Aaron was living in Gibraltar with his parents, when he was scouted by Rob Gibson (Exeter Chiefs Academy Manager) to join Exeter Chiefs academy, played for Exeter Chiefs U17s, U18s and U19s. Resulting in a 1-year u23 Exeter Chiefs contract thereafter (that year he played every single game, and trained as a full time professional). Scottish qualified, he also attended several Scotland Training camps and was part of the U19s starting Scotland squad against wales where he started at Open side.
Bucs Rugby came knocking and he was offered a full scholarship at a University to work in the hands of Mike Umaga and the promise of senior rugby alongside the Bucs Rugby. Selected to play for Wasps in the A-League and spent 5 weeks residential training with the senior Wasps Academy squad and played against Sale Sharks, Leicester Tigers, Worcester Warriors and Northampton Saints.
Moved to Stirling County to play in the new Super 6 competition in Scotland where he played the season until November and was then loaned out thereafter to Top National 1 side Darlington Mowden Park.
