Mark has been involved with Wallsend Eagles ARFLC for the past two years as a volunteer. In addition to his heavy playing schedule for Gateshead Thunder u18's, Scotland u18's and the College Academy Mark still manages to find time to volunteer at his local Community Club.
Mark assists with the u16's squad and has also been involved as a Team Manager at two Regional Player Development Centres and regularly finds time to assist with trial days.
Mark has recently been named North East Young Volunteer of the Year and was runner up for the North Tyneside 'Junior Sports Volunteer' and 'Junior Sports Personality' all of which are due to his hard work, dedication and enthusiasm towards Rugby League. Mark is a great role model for the younger players at Wallsend Eagles both in a playing and volunteering capacity. CR
