Next Thursday the Wildcats Community Team are going on the road to the home of the Oulton Raiders, to rally support for the new stadium at Junction 30. The Community Team will be there with Wildcats 1st Team stars Ben Jeffries, Matt Blaymire and our Captain Glenn Morrison to hopefully get as many signatures to the statement of support that the club has prepared. Chief Executive James Elston will be in attendance to answer any questions that local residents may have with regards the stadium plans, which will potentially be a new indoor training facility open for all age groups at Oulton Raiders. Being a former Raider himself, James Elston knows the benefits that a new indoor training facility would provide for the teams at Oulton:
“All clubs struggle to find adequate venues to train in the winter months, the plans for the stadium include a full size sports Barn which will be available to the Raiders as well as having a premier stadium on their doorstep.
I have Oulton to thank for starting my rugby league career and it will give me great pleasure to go back and offer these facilities to the Raiders”
The players, community team and James Elston will be at the Oulton Raiders home on Thursday 13th January from 6pm. Wildcats representative Rocky Whitehead will also be on hand to entertain the children with the help of Daddy Cool and the bar will be open!
