Wakefield Trinity’s Physical Disability Rugby League side was joined by some special guests this weekend as we invited some of our sponsors down to Leeds for the fourth PDRL festival of the year.
After a huge amount of support shown in the offseason, our sponsors saw the new-look kit for 2022 for the very first time as our side took on Castleford and a mixture of Bradford and Salford in Oulton yesterday.
Looking to make the partnerships as fruitful as possible, Medequip and Farrar Bamforth took the time to host stalls for all players, staff and spectators at the festival, offering all in attendance a little more insight into the services they offer, whilst staff from Limetree Mortgage Solutions and Age UK Wakefield District were also in attendance.
Speaking about the support from our sponsors, the Foundation’s Media & Commercial Executive, William Moore, said, “It was an incredible opportunity to give back to our sponsors, especially after showing their support for 2022.
“To have stalls from Medequip UK and Farrar Bamforth as well as having Limetree and Age UK there to show support was incredible and I cannot thank them enough for coming down.”
With a wealth of support on their backs, Trinity took to pitch two as they faced an old foe in Castleford Tigers, looking to maintain their unbeaten record.
However, it was the Tigers who took game one. Castleford took an early two-score lead before Darren Dean brought Trinity back into the contest just before the break.
It was the Tigers who rose to the challenge in the second half, though, and after a battle in Oulton, Castleford took an 18-4 victory.
There was still time to put it right, though, as we entered the second game of the day, taking on a mixture of Bradford Bulls and Salford Red Devils as they start their PDRL journey.
Despite the defeat in game one, Trinity rallied as Ben Reynolds scored a spectacular solo try as Trinity took a well-deserved victory to end the day.
