In the 2006/07 season Alex moved up a division playing in Division 1 with the "Eagles" Under 16A team.  Alex continued to train with an U16/U18 develoment team - see picture below.

The 2007/08 season saw Alex in the Under 18 Division 1 North. The season started brightly with an assist and spirit of the game award for a fine performance against Telford. However, lack of numbers mean that there is no Under 18s team for Alex's final junior season. He continues to train hard and is concentrating on his officiating and hopes to resume his playing career at University next season.
