Festival FeverWarrington Wolves in partnership with Scottish Power, Sportsmatch and Warrington Borough Council have staged 4 Primary Link Tag Festivals and have been involved in a fifth in association with St Barnabas Primary School. All the Festivals have been attended by Warrington Wolves first team players who have taken an active part in refereeing and coaching nearly 1000 pupils both boys and girls from nearly 50 Warrington primary schools. A key part of Primary Link is the involvement of the Town's Amateur Rugby League Clubs. All Festivals are staged at the Amateur Clubs and this week Latchford Albion, Rylands, Woolston and Crosfields have been first class in hosting the festivals at their grounds. Director of Community and Marketing, Adam Jude enthused, "Undoubtedly Primary Link would not have made the impact it has without the active involvement of the Town's Amateur Clubs. Their hard work after the completion of Primary Link coaching in the schools has resulted in a record amount of children participating in Rugby League then ever before in Warrington". Jude adds, "The Club and all its Partners would just like to express their sincere gratitude for the amount of time, effort and quality of work that the volunteers from all the Town's Amateur Clubs give to develop Rugby League". So far through the Wolves Award Winning Community Programme over 45,000 children have been coached as a result of Primary Link.
