Newly created Mancunians Under 15’s have been granted league status and will enter the North West Counties League in March 2014.
Mancunians, who’s team members were inspired to begin playing Rugby League by the visit of the Australian Kangaroos during the 2013 Rugby League World Cup, will play against established teams including, clubs from Wigan, St Helens and Warrington during the six month season.
Head Coach of Mancunians Under 15’s, Ste Gordon says: “Joining the league is a great achievement for such a young club. Not many of the younger players had played Rugby League until October of last year and they have improved massively since they first started. They’ve worked hard over the last few months and they’ve been rewarded with a place in the league, which is a great achievement. “They have been inspired by meeting the Kangaroos last Autumn and I would urge anyone who wants to try Rugby League to come along to a training session and give it a go.” He said.
The team train together on Friday evenings at 6:00 at Parrs Wood High School, if you would like to come to join the team, come along to a session or contact Head Coach Ste on tel: 07872 567303
