Wheelchair success in Scotland
Scotland’s National Wheelchair Rugby League squad recently held a training session at the Tollcross Leisure Centre, Glasgow.
A total of 19 players both disabled and able bodied including several from the local Easterhouse Panthers Rugby League club took part and enjoyed a technically challenging four hour training session.
The atmosphere created was the ideal environment to promote Wheelchair Rugby League of the finest quality.
Team Manager and Head Coach Adrian Kennedy said: “The Scottish players who will shortly be representing their country, have the sprit, desire and passion to take the game to a new level in the sport.
“Plans are well advanced in identifying a venue for weekly training in the New Year.
“It is necessary to ensure that the long term sustainability arrangements are in place. There are further plans for taster sessions, where potential players for the National Squad will be identified.
“This is the golden opportunity for anyone wishing to become involved, whether as a player or volunteer to come along and see first-hand how exciting, skilled and engaging the sport of Wheelchair Rugby League really can be.”
Everyone is welcome to both come along and observe the training sessions or try out the sport for the first time.
