Featherstone Rovers Foundation supports creation of first Ackworth Jaguars Junior Team

Featherstone Rovers Foundation supports creation of first Ackworth Jaguars Junior Team

Featherstone Rovers Foundation’s ‘Junior Rovers’ sessions in Ackworth have evolved into a brand new junior team for Ackworth Jaguars. 

A Jaguars Under 7s side will take its place in the Yorkshire Junior League from March 2021, with foundation support to ensure a smooth transition. 

Junior Rovers sessions were partially funded by the Sky Try initiative and the foundation also provided more 100 hours of coaching at local schools completely free of charge. Interactive and fun activities have been delivered by RL Development Officer Paul March, who not only had a successful Super League career but who joins James Webster on the coaching team at Rovers as assistant coach. 

Training sessions will start again after Christmas on Sunday morning’s at Low Ackworth playing fields and new players are encouraged to join.
