St Jude’s get Warriors experience

Wigan Warriors Community Foundation are pleased to support Community Club Ambassador side Wigan St Jude’s in their development in the game.

Wigan St Jude’s recently experienced an exclusive ambassadors session with Super League players Kaitlin Hilton, Rachel Thompson, Anna Davies and non-playing first team squad members,

The experience included a behind-the-scenes tour of the facilities and opportunities to have pictures with the Challenge Cup.

Wigan St Jude’s open age team started 12 months ago and the Club is now looking to give more local girls the opportunity by creating a pathway for girls to play from U12s to U18s.

Community Coach, Rachel Thompson, said: “The club session on Friday night was a great showcase of the growth of the Women’s and girls game amongst our Community Clubs.

“It’s great for the young girls to get the opportunity to train and be coached by some of our first team players and hopefully we can continue to inspire the next generation of superstars.”

Chris English, Women’s team Coach at Wigan St Jude’s added: “Wigan St Jude’s would like to thank Wigan Warriors Community Foundation for their superb hospitality on Friday night, everyone involved had a great time. Our girls were invited to take part in a training session lead by wigan warriors community staff and players from both women’s and men’s teams and the experience will be a massive boost for the St Jude’s girls going forward.

We look forward to working with wigan warriors on a more regular basis and will be beneficial for all involved helping us creating our women’s and girl’s pathway.”

Wigan Warriors Community Foundation are heavily invested in supporting Community Rugby League. With the rapid increase in girls playing the game, we would like to offer our full support. If any Community Clubs would like to take advantage of a game day experience, please contact [email protected].
