A rugby-mad student has gone back to his roots to learn from his former coaches.

Connor Lye, who joined Cramlington Rockets rugby league club as an eight-year-old, is now shadowing its community coaches to gain work experience.

Connor, who is studying sport and exercise science at Leeds Beckett University, is working with Rockets Community to help deliver sessions in schools.

He said: “When I found out that Cramlington Rockets had a community department that was giving work experience opportunities to students I jumped at the chance to come back to where it all began for me.”
