Wolves stars behind bars
8:00am Tuesday 13th August 2013 in News
PLAYERS and staff from Warrington Wolves were invited to experience a very different environment this week, when they visited a young offenders institute in Hindley.
A group of young people from the unit were invited by the Wolves squad to join them in a full training session, including warm-up, skills tests and a series of drills, before taking part in a game of touch rugby out on the field.
The visit continued with a question and answer session between the inmates and younger members of the Wolves squad.
Paul Whittingham, business and partners manager YOI Hindley, said:”We were grateful to work with Warrington Wolves, as this gave our young people the opportunity to engage in sporting activity, and gain an understanding of some of the important aspects of being a successful sportsman, including commitment, discipline, a structured regime, and working as a team.”
