It was great to see the Warrington Wolves Women’s and Girls’ Rugby League Club offer a helping hand to their counterparts from Hindley ARLFC when they invited them to a training session at Victoria Park recently.
The initiative was designed to give the newly-formed Hindley Under-12 and Under-14 girls the chance to work with a larger group of players in their age groups and develop their skills as both teams prepare for the start of the new season.
Ryan Cartledge, Women and Girls Development Officer, said:
“It was great to see the two teams train together, support and challenge each other in a fun and positive atmosphere. A huge thanks must go to Claire Burgess and Gary Meacham from both clubs for organising such a fantastic evening and of course Mark Stringer for these fantastic photos and who has helped connect the two clubs to grow this exciting partnership.
This is what separates Rugby League from every other sport! It’s all about family values, supporting each other to grow the game. This session truly matched that.”
Claire Burgess, Hindley’s Junior and Girls section manager, was delighted to have the opportunity to train with the Wolves. She said:
“The support from Warrington girls from the off was fantastic and put our girls at ease. It was great to see how far the girls have come in their development. They formed some great friendships while enjoying the sport they love.”
Warrington Wolves Women’s and Girls’ Rugby League Club is one of the fastest growing in the country, with more than 240 players and eight teams, including our Women’s Super League team.
