Wakefield Trinity LDSL will compete in their second festival of the year today as the Community Integrated Care LD Super League heads to Hull.
Following the success of last month’s Community Integrated Care LDSL festival in Warrington, the teams return for another round of action this weekend at the University of Hull, with Hull FC set to host the second festival of the year as they kickstart their Hull&Proud week.
Chris Godfrey, the RFL Social & Inclusion Manager, said, “We are looking forward to another great weekend of inclusive activity all based in Hull. Following the Wheelchair Challenge Cup Festival on Saturday, Sunday will see Hull FC host the next Community Integrated Care LDSL Festival.
“In two days over 300 disabled players, with a passion for Rugby League, are to play and compete under the two separate banners of Wheelchair and Learning Disability Rugby League.”
Trinity’s LDSL side started back in 2018 around the same time as our Physical Disability Rugby League side, making huge strides forward in the years that followed.
Chris Godfrey followed, “Rugby League is a sport for all and that is a fact that is being celebrated this weekend through the continued fantastic work by all involved.”
16 teams will take to the pitch from the nine community foundations involved this weekend, which include: Hull FC, Wakefield Trinity, Salford Red Devils, Hull KR, Barrow Raiders, Leigh Centurions, York City Knights, Castleford Tigers and Featherstone Rovers.
The festival kicks off at 13:00 this Sunday at the University of Hull, with the activities set to be wrapped up by 16:00.
