SRD Foundation to host trials for Wales Physical Disability World Cup squad

Salford Red Devils Foundation are proud to be hosting the trials at Eccles Sixth Form College for the Wales Physical Disability World Cup squad on Sunday 18th July at 2pm, as part of its ongoing commitment to providing access to rugby league for all in the community.

The first-class facilities will form a central base for ongoing training sessions delivered by highly qualified Wales Rugby League coaches and aided and supported by Salford Red Devils Foundation.

Salford Red Devils Foundation director Neil Blackburn said: “Salford Red Devils and Wales RL have a fantastic partnership in place and we are thrilled to be able to host their PDRL world cup squad.

“We currently run a Learning Disability Super League team and are actively looking to further develop our disability delivery so the opportunity to link up is perfect.”

The first session will be held on Sunday 18th July and this will give the opportunity for anyone who is interested to attend and join in with the activities.

Trialists need to be born in Wales, have lived in Wales for at least five years or have Welsh heritage – at least one parent or grandparent born in Wales. If you have any of these qualifications, you may get the opportunity to join the squad but if you don’t, all are still welcome to attend this open access session.
