Beverley Braves Chairman Neil Gay is urging young people to come forward and try out the sport.
With the Rugby League World Cup due to be held in the UK and also the potential sport could return in spring, he feels now has never been a better time to get into rugby.
Speaking to Hu17.net Neil said;
“So many young people have been cooped up with little to do. I want to get those people out, in the fresh air enjoying the sport.”
“With that in mind, we are inviting anyone between the age of 6 and 16 to come to the club and give rugby league go.”
“Over the past few months, we have all seen how important exercise is. We have also seen just how important sport is to both their physical and mental health.”
“As a club, we have never had so many registered players. We have just under 200 on our books fielding teams from U6 to U16s.”
“Parents and guardians should also see this as an opportunity to help youngsters to get back to some level of normality. It has been a testing time for households with a lack of activities.”
“We feel this is an amazing opportunity to put down the PlayStation controller, get out, get fit and make some new friends.”
