Wigan Bulldogs get Warriors experience

Wigan Warriors Community Foundation recently delivered a fun rugby development session to local Community Club, Wigan Bulldogs. 

The session, delivered by the Community Foundation, aimed at developing core skills and putting them into practice through small-sided games, whilst having fun along the way.

The young players were also joined by first team player, Joe Shorrocks, who joined in with the session, passing on some key pointers.

Natalie Williams of Wigan Bulldogs said: “The Wigan Bulldogs juniors were loving the skills session and when they saw Joe Shorrocks they were all in awe to meet one of their Rugby League idols and have their pictures taken with him, ask him questions and getting his autograph.

“I would love to take this opportunity to thank Wigan Warriors Community Foundation for their fantastic support throughout the year and look forward to some more great opportunities in the future.” 


Community Foundation Assistant Manager, Danny Fullerton, added: “Wigan Bulldogs are a fantastic Community Club that has a variety of teams all working together to give the juniors the best experience. 

“The Community Foundation are creating more opportunities for local juniors to train at Robin Park Arena throughout the summer, these sessions alongside the coach education programme has seen a huge uptake this year.”

He added: “The sessions are open to all ages and can be tailored to the needs of any age group and if your team would like to have a Warrior experience please get in touch with Wigan Warriors Community Foundation on Community@wiganwarriors.com
