Aled Summerhill started his rugby career with Porth RFC at the age of six, then moved to Pontypridd RFC Mini and Junior sections until the age of nine, before joining his Rhondda Schools U11 teammates at Treorchy RFC.
He played at outside half for Treorchy and Rhondda Schools until the age of fifteen, when he was converted to centre.
Summerhill studied at Coleg Morgannwg and represented the Blues at Under-16 level and Under-18 level where he has played for the past two years. At the age of seventeen, Summerhill trained with the Wales Sevens and was called up to train with the Blues senior side in the summer of 2013.
Aled toured South Africa with the Wales Under-18s in August, starting all three matches against France, England and South Africa at outside centre.
For the 2013/14 season, and as part of his on-going development, Aled was allocated to Pontypridd RFC as a regional player and helped the club achieve the league and cup double.
