Accrington Kick Off Summer of Fun

The Warriors Community Team last week supported Accrington Wildcats with a special summer camp to help recruit new players to join the newly formed club.

The Warriors spent two days at the club coaching children from 6-12 years old the fundamentals of Rugby League through skill sessions and games.

Terri Davey community coach commented:

"It was an impressive turn out on both the days and the club made the community team very welcome."

Warriors stars Michael Mcllorum and Eamon O'Carroll also paid the camp a visit, posing for pictures and signing autographs before holding a question and answer session with the kids.

One of the participants asked, "If you didn’t make it playing rugby what would you have liked to have done for a job?"

Michel said he would have been a footballer and Eamon told the audience that he would have been a paramedic like his dad!

The players and children shared laughter and conversations and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

The two exciting days finished with a presentation with all the children receiving a Big One voucher for the Wigan v Leeds game and a Wigan Warriors shirt from mascot Max.
