Wolves receive Bulldog welcome
Warrington Wolves first team continued their ‘One Community' programme last week when the squad visited local amateur club Burtonwood Bulldogs on Wednesday evening.
The squad held their on-field training session at the facility before interacting with the visiting supporters for photographs and autographs.
The ‘One Community' programme aims to strengthen our community game by working together to create a stronger environment to play and develop.
Burtonwood are one of six clubs that have signed up to the charter along with Latchford, Woolston, Rylands, Crosfields and Culcheth.
These clubs are the future of Rugby League in the town and Warrington Wolves are proud to have a strong association with local community teams.
Peter McConnell from Burtonwood Bulldogs said: "We were proud to host a training session for the Warrington Wolves. The players and staff from the Wolves were a credit to the club, spending time with the children and families, both before and after their session. Grassroots rugby starts at community club level and the chance to be up-close and personal with their sporting heroes inspires the children to continue playing and encourages them to tell their friends and bring more children into the sport. We cannot thank the Wolves enough for this event and hope there will many more in the future."
Wolves' head of coaching and rugby Tony Smith added: "It's our duty to do activities and promote the game within our own community. We are certainly doing that by visiting all our local clubs throughout the year by having training sessions at their facilities and signing days. The players have been excellent so far in their approach to participating and training in the community and we will continue to do so and aim to in the years come."
