Foundation launches Lions Programme

Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation is delighted to be partnering with Featherstone Rovers to stage a Lions Development Programme in June & July 2023.

Following the huge success over the last couple of years with our Trinity Talent Pathways & Rugby League Series programmes, the club is fortunate enough to expand this to the U12 & U13s age groups situated across the district.

This programme will allow young players to develop their skills within a unique environment under the tutelage of experienced coaches every Wednesday evening, planning games against our West Yorkshire neighbours, Featherstone, in both June and July.

Sessions will begin on Wednesday, 21st June from 5:30 – 7pm before the first game the week after. Training will then continue on the 28th June for three weeks before the final fixture on the 26th July 2023.

Speaking on the launch of the all-new programme, the Foundation’s Rugby League & Inclusion Officer, Charlie Doherty, said, “This is a great opportunity to continue our growth of the game within Wakefield.

“We are continuously looking at ways in which we can work with all age groups, expanding their knowledge and skills as they begin to develop into Rugby League professionals.

“We are looking forward to seeing how our players compete against Featherstone over the coming months.”
