Woolston Rovers Changing Rooms Officially Reopened after World Cup Grant

Woolston Rovers were awarded a grant for £14,999 from the CreatedBy Rugby League World Cup 2021 Capital Grants Programme to enable the club to update the club's current home and away changing rooms, as well as provide four additional changing rooms for their Junior Section and install an outside toilet block at Monk Sports Club, the club's home on the outskirts of Warrington.

The official re-opening of the changing rooms took place on Saturday afternoon with special guests Stuart Middleton, Chairman of Warrington Wolves, Daryl Powell, Head Coach of Warrington Wolves, The Mayor of Warrington Cllr Maureen Creaghan and Charlotte Nichols MP for Warrington North.

The dignitaries were given a close-up inspection of the completed work by Club Chairman Steve Moore and Senior Vice President Warren Whalley, who have both played key roles in the whole process over the past couple of years.

Steve Moore said: "There has been a lot of blood, sweat and tears over the past two years so that we could get our facilities updated and to now see the finished product it is immensely satisfying.

"We have overcome a few hurdles along the way but it is all worth it now. Warren Whalley put the grant bid together and has been fantastic throughout, ensuring that the project remained on track.

"We must say a massive thank you to Zoe & Phil Wrench at Limestone Construction Ltd for providing the manpower and materials that have made our 'home' changing room absolutely first class. Having people like that supporting community clubs like ourselves is vital and we are very lucky to have them."
