Meet the inspirational Finley Shaw

Meet the inspirational Finley Shaw

"At Elland it's not often we single out just one person for praise, as we have a club full of superstars!

However this particular youngster deserves a massive shout out...

Just over 12 months ago, young Finley Shaw had a 12-hour operation to remove a cavernoma from his brain stem, a worrying time for all his family & friends.

Yet just a mere seven weeks later he was back at it training with his buddies in our Fat Cat Tots!

The supportive messages he received from the Rugby League community was overwhelming, he even got a special visit from Eorl Crabtree and some great presents from all the Giants when they heard about what a brave lad he had been.

Fin has been training with the under 7s this year and has recently had his sixth Birthday, playing his first games in the last couple of weeks and showing us just what strong stuff he is made of!

His first game he was awarded with Parents' Man of the Match, and despite an operation on his eye between games, this week it was Opposition Man of the Match & Magic Moment.

What an inspiration he is to all of us at Elland, we are truly proud and in awe of you Fin!"
