Biography

Local lad Ollie joined the Widnes Scholarship programme at the age of 14 having played junior rugby with the Widnes St Maries and Moorfield clubs, and states that the biggest influence on his fledgling career has been his mother. The former pupil of Sts Peter and Paul College cites signing his three year senior contract with the Vikings as his career highlight so far. Described by the coaching staff as fast, evasive, brave and confident he had represented England at Youth level before a shoulder reconstruction in early 2016 forced his withdrawal from the England Academy squad to tour Australia. A knee injury sustained during pre-season training wrote off 2017 before Ollie finally made his senior bow for the Vikings in 2018, claiming his maiden Super League try against Hull KR, in addition to appearances for North Wales Crusaders. Away from rugby Ollie enjoys spending time with his friends and fishing.
