Wakefield Trinity LDSL’s Ben Gommersall cannot wait to get back out on the pitch and represent the club at this weekend’s festival.
Following on from the recent success in Warrington, Community Integrated Care’s Learning Disability Super League will head East this weekend as we go to Hull FC for the second competition of the year.
With a strong squad of over 17 players, Trinity’s disability set-up continues to thrive, boasted by funds gained from our incredible sponsors. A mix of hard work and passion goes a long way in Rugby League, and Ben can’t wait to be back on the pitch in Red, White & Blue.
“I enjoyed my first festival of the year very much. The feeling of being on the pitch again was fantastic.
“It was amazing to be with my teammates again. We have a great bond and team spirit.
“I have very much missed playing when the season ended. Not seeing my amazing teammates is not easy.”
Learning Disability Rugby League was brought in to maximise inclusion laced throughout the sport and increase enjoyment for everyone involved.
That has led us here, with festivals situated across the North of England, with teams following the sport from all areas.
“I am really excited to get back on the pitch in Hull on Sunday and represent Wakefield Trinity,” Gommersall followed.
“I have loved playing rugby again, and I scored my first ever try for Wakefield against Hull FC. I can’t wait.”
We wish all the teams taking part in Sunday’s festival the very best of luck. We hope you all enjoy it.
