Wakefield’s Rugby League Winter success

Wakefield Trinity’s Winter Series claimed even more success on Saturday as our under-15 & under-16 participants took on Salford at Sharlston.

Following earlier successes in both the Summer & Autumn, the Foundation continued the growth of Rugby League in the district at the weekend as Salford Red Devils’ pathway programme headed across the Pennines.

As a way of continuing their skills in the off-season, away from their community clubs, Trinity’s two sides, made up of over 50 participants, shouldered big tests from multiple Salford packs. Quick thinking and moments of magic was laced throughout the two age groups, with both sets of players showing how far they have come on the programme.

As a pathway programme in Wakefield, participants have the opportunity to be spotted by some of the best scholarships at the club, with progression opportunities available for some of the best players from each of the different programmes, with multiple players already being picked up throughout 2022.

Speaking on the overall pathway programme, Community Rugby League & Inclusion Officer, Charlie Doherty, said, “Some of the skill on show this weekend was top draw, and we were delighted to get so many players down.

“These sessions have been a great way for young players to come together and develop in a new, unique environment and we have seen this throughout the last couple of months.

“We are excited to see what 2023 brings for Rugby League at Wakefield Trinity.”

Whilst, Head of Foundation, Mark Brennan, followed, “These pathway programmes are always a great spectacle, and we are proud to be able to host.

“As a club, Rugby League is at the heart of everything we do, and we are pleased to be able to offer this structure throughout the year. The new year will bring new goals and we can’t wait to get started.”
