Blue Light Round 2023 | Activities

Wakefield Trinity is delighted to confirm the activities for tomorrow’s Blue Light Round against St Helens.

Round 24 of Trinity’s season kicks off on Sunday, 3rd September 2023 as the current Grand Final holders come to town for the first time this season.

The 80-minute game isn’t the only spectacle taking place on Sunday, however, as the Foundation have an abundance of activities taking place throughout the day to celebrate our Military, Veterans and Public Service sectors and the work they put into keeping our community protected and supported.

As a club situated at the heart of the Community, we would like to take the time sacrifices made each day to help keep our City, County and Country safe and supported.

Joining us tomorrow will be members of the Military Preparation College based in Wakefield at the Army Reserve Centre – George Street, with those here today studying Level Two Preparation for Military Service and Level Three Entry to the Uniformed Services.

MPCT was officially established in 2002 and has 41 academies residing in sports centres and military army reserve centres, with an Ofsted rating of one, delivering Education to 16-18, and 19–25-year-olds.

Throughout the afternoon, the team of learners will be showcasing parts of their well-devised Curriculum as they show the Energisers and Physical Training element of their studies from 2pm.

MPCT will also join the Standard of the 6 Riflemen at a stall situated behind the Stadium’s Hospitality Block, urging supporters to browse a selection of different courses available at their Wakefield base.

Following the pre-match routine, the Club is pleased to welcome special guest Colin Cranswick, carrying the standard of the 8th Rifles, who will lead the teams out onto the field. At the same time, supporters will be asked to take part in a minutes’ silence, which will start and end on ‘The Last Post’ performed by members of the Minden House Buglers.

We would like to thank those attending tomorrow’s match in advance and look forward to showcasing our Blue Light Round 2023.

Those with Blue Light & Military/Veteran ID cards can purchase tickets from the Ridings Club Shop for a discounted price.
