Rugby League World Cup grant boost for Woolston Rovers


NEW updated changing rooms and toilets have been officially opened at Woolston Rovers Rugby League Club.

Among the special guests present at the ceremony were guests Stuart Middleton, chairman of Warrington Wolves, Daryl Powell, head coach of Warrington Wolves, Mayor of Warrington Cllr Maureen Creaghan and Charlotte Nichols MP for Warrington North.

The club was awarded a grant for £14,999 from the CreatedBy Rugby League World Cup 2021 capital grants programme to enable the club to update the facilities at their Monk Sports Club home.

In addition, to update the home and away changing rooms, the project also provides four additional changing rooms for the junior section and also an outside toilet block.
Guests were given a close-up inspection of the completed work by club chairman Steve Moore and senior vice president Warren Whalley, who have both played key roles in the whole process over the past couple of years.

Steve Moore said, “There has been a lot of blood, sweat and tears over the past two years so that we could get our facilities updated and to now see the finished product it is immensely satisfying. We have overcome a few hurdles along the way but it is all worth it now.

“Warren Whalley put the grant bid together and has been fantastic throughout, ensuring that the project remained on track. We must say a massive thank you to Zoe and Phil Wrench at Limestone Construction Ltd for providing the manpower and materials that have made our ‘home’ changing room absolutely first class. Having people like that supporting community clubs like ourselves is vital and we are very lucky to have them.”
