Wakefield Trinity Wildcats have paid tribute to the loyal fans who endured both terrible travelling conditions and a much delayed kick off for their Engage Super League Round 19 game at Crusaders RL in Wrexham yesterday (Sunday).
Some of the fans, together with the Wildcats team, were caught up in the chaos when the M62 Trans-Pennine Motorway was closed because of an incident at Scammonden near Huddersfield while other fans were in place for a 6.00pm kick off at the Racecourse Ground which was then delayed until 8.00pm.
James Elston., the Wildcats’ Chief Executive, said: “We’d like to thank the fans who made the journey to North Wales.
“We’ve got some amazing people who follow the club and they proved that once again by either battling across the Pennines one way or the other, or waited patiently at Wrexham for the team to arrive.
“We would like them to know that everybody at the Wildcats from Chairman Ted Richardson and the Board of Directors via Head Coach John Kear and the players through to the Community and Administrative staff really appreciated the trouble they took to support the team yesterday.
“The players responded in the best possible way with an amazing 41-0 win and we hope that was a suitable reward for the people who made their way to Wales yesterday.”
