WARRINGTON Wolves Supporters’ Trust & Squadbuilder (WWST) are for the first time holding a bucket collection at the Wire’s opening home fixture of the season against St Helens, tonight (Thursday).
They will have the support of the whole Academy (U18’s) squad thanks to coach Academy Paul Anderson and Head of Youth Peter Riding.
The 24 lads will be in the concourses before the game and at half time.
The aim of Warrington Wolves Supporters’ Trust – Squadbuilder (WWST) is to support the development, coaching and promotion of young rugby players at all levels. This includes aiding local junior sides, schools and the U 16’s and U 18’s at Warrington Wolves, through to fully professional Wolves’ players.
The WWST has donated over £200,000 since its inception in 2002, by supporting the Wolves Youth Development department and the Wolves Foundation Community team, funding the training and education of players and coaches and the donation of equipment.
They want as many HOME GROWN players at the club as possible. This provides a source of great pride not only for the club and the fans but also for the players, their families and friends, their school and community club.
Pictured above are home grown players with Head Coach Steve Price.
