Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation is delighted with the response to our most recent Summer Series programme, which helped 37 young players onto the Rugby League ladder.
After two months, six sessions, three games and one festival, last Wednesday, our final Summer Series session came to an end in a State of Origin-style battle between Wakefield Blue and Wakefield White.
A competitive tussle between two of Trinity’s finest England Talent Pathway participants was the fitting end to a project that brought so many community clubs together.
Starting on Wednesday, 30th June, players from 10 different junior clubs situated across the district came together to get an alternative view of how Rugby League is played, from our experienced staff members.
Following their intensive sessions at Eastmoor, players found themselves testing their newfound skills in typical ‘game situations,’ with competitive matches being arranged against York and Leeds.
Through the club’s support games were played on the Mobile Rocket Stadium pitch, offering all players the opportunity to replicate their favourite professionals as well as getting a taste of a professional Rugby League setting.
Following the completion of the 2021 programme, Rugby League Development Manager, Josh Riding, was delighted with how the 37 players conducted themselves and believes there will be a few ones to watch in the future.
