200+ players attend LDSL season finale

Learning Disability Rugby League added another success to its long list of achievements this weekend as over 200+ players participated in Sunday’s festival in York.

2021 has been a brilliant year for the sport of LDSL and after a year out due to the pandemic, the sport returned in April, with festivals being celebrated at Featherstone, Wakefield, Castleford & York.

After gathering momentum over the past couple of months, LDSL came to a fitting end yesterday, as over 200 players and 13 teams met at York’s all-new Haxby Road for a Learning Disability RL extravaganza.

Coming from all over the north of England, Wakefield met with players from St Helens, Castleford, Featherstone, Hull FC, Hull KR, Leeds, Newcastle, Salford, Warrington, Widnes, Wigan and York.

Doubling its number of participants from 2019, the RFL – partnering with Community Integrated Care – have shifted a keen focus onto growing the disability game across the UK.

With 2021 now coming to an end, Learning Disability RL will continue into the new year, with training sessions taking place from 7pm every Monday night at Eastmoor Dragons.
