Wolves star leads training for learning disability team


WARRINGTON Wolves hooker Danny Walker led the last training session for rugby players with learning disabilities in preparation of the launch of the Community Integrated Care Learning Disability Super League, taking place this weekend.
The ground-breaking league is set to launch at the Dacia Magic Weekend, at Anfield Stadium, Liverpool on Saturday and Sunday.
Super League and the Rugby Football League have partnered with the national social care charity Community Integrated Care to create a pioneering inclusive sports programme for people with learning disabilities and autism. Gaining significant national attention since its announcement in February, and engaging hundreds of people in the sport, this world-first programme is a growing success.
Danny, who is an ambassador for the ground-breaking social inclusion programme, said: “It’s been brilliant, when I turned up the team all made me feel very welcome.”
At the session, Danny also presented the team with their Warrington Wolves shirts for the big game at the weekend.
He said afterwards: “I really enjoyed it – it’s put a big smile on my face to see how much it means to them being presented their Warrington Wolves shirts.
“The initiative speaks for itself – it’s going to be a really special occasion for everyone involved and those who have worked so hard to get this initiative up and running.”
The Dacia Magic Weekend launch event will provide one of the biggest ever crowds for a learning disability sport event. Supporters attending the weekend will have the opportunity to watch the inspiring action first-hand on both days of the event. With a special festival taking place on Stanley Park during the second game of each day, and the teams playing on the famous Anfield turf during the halftime break of the final games, the Community Integrated Care Learning Disability Super League players will be at the heart of the action. The Warrington Wolves Learning Disability team will take to the stage on the Saturday of the weekend.
