This Monday saw the Wigan Warriors inaugural Girls Rugby Shield kickstart the Foundations action packed week at Central Park.

Over 100 girls competed in the competition on a fun-filled afternoon at Central Park. Abraham Guest, Edmund Arrowsmith, Deanery High, St John Fisher and Holy Cross were all in attendance with girls aged 11-15.

The Wigan Girls Shield has grown significantly over the past four seasons with more girls getting involved in the sport than ever before. Each year the winner of the Shield goes onto represent the town in the prestigious War of the Roses competition against the winner of the Leeds Schools tournament.

Commenting on a fantastic day at Central Park, PE Teacher and Head Coach of Deanery High School, Kris Ratcliffe said:

"We've been coming down to these events with the Wigan Warriors Community Foundation for around 7 years and they just get better every single year, they are always really well organised. It can be difficult to get girls interested in Rugby League at times but the Warriors Foundation are essential to growing the pool of female rugby players within the town."

Speaking about the excitement of the week ahead, Schools and Projects Manager, Mike Wearden said:

"What a superb way to start off a week in the community, we can't wait for the rest of the week now. To have over 100 girls playing Rugby League in a competitive tournament is just fantastic to see."

Abraham Guest went home with both the year 7 and 8 shield's (pictured below), alongside St Edmund Arrowsmith who won the year 9/10 shield competition (pictured above).

The Week continues with the Primary School Contact Rugby Festival on Wednesday before the Foundation is back in schools delivering their highly successful School Sports Days at St Oswalds and St Patricks primary schools.
