A talented athlete, Harry – who lost both legs to meningitis as a baby – has also represented England in Wheelchair Rugby League. At 11-years-old, the Halifax native first played wheelchair basketball and since that day has continued to go from strength to strength in the sport.

Harry was one of eight GB U22 players to receive the honour of being selected to carry the Paralympic Flag into the stadium during the 2012 Opening Ceremony. Previously Harry also represented the GB Men’s Team in fantastic battles against future Paralympic Champions Canada and quarter finalists Spain at the Standard Life Continental Clash.
2013 saw Harry continue to build upon his senior international success, once again assisting the GB Men’s Team to gold at the European Championships in Frankfurt, Germany; the following year the Halifax native made his World Championship debut for Great Britain in South Korea.
In 2015 the 2.5 player not only assisted the GB Men to a qualification place for the Rio 2016 Games, but a third consecutive European Championship title.
2016 saw Harry selected to represent his nation for the Rio Paralympics, where the team brought home the bronze medal.
