A Doncaster powerlifter has flexed his skills as an apprentice bricklayer to land a top award.

Harry Regan, aged 21, has won an army of fans for his online videos of lifting heavy weights - but now he has picked up a top trophy instead after winning the Yorkshire Apprentice of the Year award from house builder Redrow.

The former Ridgewood High School pupil said: “I feel really proud to receive this award.

“It came as a surprise as the company is full of talented people, but it shows that hard work doesn’t go unnoticed and effort really does pay off.

“It’s a great time to receive it to top off my apprenticeship.

“I love the job I do and I have been fortunate to have had the hands-on experience of working on two different development sites as I’ve trained.”

He added: “Being part of a large team, involving so many different disciplines, is fantastic and has really helped me to see the big picture when it comes to house building.

“It is really satisfying to progress through the levels with Redrow. The support and encouragement I have received have been brilliant.”

The prestigious accolade recognises Red Row’s top performing trainees across the country.

Harry joined Redrow in 2013 and has achieved levels 2 and 3 in bricklaying, picking up a whole host of distinctions for his top quality work along the way.
