George Lapslie is part of the future here at Charlton and could easily go on to become an Addicks captain as time goes on, with that he recently achieved a degree in sports science at Anglia Ruskin University.
Speaking with The South London Press George had this to say about where his work ethic comes from
“My dad is an electrician and he is non-stop helping people all the time”
“My grandad is a design technology teacher. They are both grafters and they have instilled in me the right attitude – which has helped me in my career.”
The 22-year-old also touched on how it affected his personal life whilst the studies were on-going
“In the first year of university my timetable was horrendous. I had regularly to do assignments within a week.
“As time goes on, you get to grips with it – you do an hour here and an hour there and then another one later on and chip away at what needs to be done.
“I do like computer games – FIFA especially – but while I’m studying there were months when I had to have a games ban – especially when I was working on my dissertation.”
I have to say I’m certainly not one for university, but Lappo has passed with flying colours and has given his all during this period of his life. The amount of hard work that goes into it is extremely overwhelming and I take my hat off to anyone goes through it all.
Can’t wait to see his hard work back out on the pitch as he is getting very close to full fitness and we could see him against Millwall on Saturday.
