Craig joined the Army in 1999 and qualified to be an aircraft technician with the REME in 2001. Throughout his career he has worked on a number of different aircraft types such as the Apache, Lynx and Wildcat. He has completed 3 tours of Afghanistan and 1 tour of Bosnia.
He is currently serving within the Aviation Reconnaissance Force Headquarters at RNAS Yeovilton. He started playing rugby in the early stages of his Army career after being introduced to Rugby League. This lasted all of one season and then he was converted to Union. Since then he has never looked back and captained his Unit, 11 Training Battalion, to the Army Community Cup champions in 2012. He has also represented his Corp, the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers on a number of occasions.
He is now taking a forced break from Rugby due to a shoulder injury but will hopefully be back playing in the near future and his goal is to play for the Army Masters. As he now lives in Bath he is a regular attendee to the Rec to cheer on his local team.
Craig joined Rugby for Heroes after hearing about it through his wife and immediately realised what a positive impact it would have on fellow members of the Forces facing the difficulty of transitioning into civilian life.
