REVAMPED PAST PLAYERS ASSOCIATION LAUNCH SUCCESS

posted on 5 February 2013

Last week saw the successful launch of the revamped Wildcats Past Players Association.

More than 50 former players attended the launch of the revamped Past Players Association.

Over 50 familiar faces who have represented the club over a number of decades enjoyed an evening in the Legends Suite at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium where they had the chance to catch up with old friends and share tales of their playing days.

The likes of Neil Fox were joined by Bill Ashurst who made his way over from Wigan for the launch night which was hosted by another former player and now broadcaster, Terry Crook.

Also in attendance was Wildcats head coach Richard Agar and Chief Executive James Elston, who gave a short presentation on how the Past Players Association will work moving forward.  The majority of those in attendance signed up to become members, entitling them to entry to every game of the season for themselves and a guest as well as the opportunity to attend Past Players Association events.

The Wildcats CEO hailed the night as a big success.  “It was a great evening,” commented Elston, “and it was great to see players from across the different eras represented and enjoying sharing some of their many memories from playing days.

Terry Crook puts the questions to Wildcats head coach Richard Agar.

“There was a real buzz about the Association and wanting to be a part of it, and we managed to get hold of a number of contacts for other former players who we hadn’t been able to get in touch with to give them the opportunity to be a part of it.

Club historian Lee Robinson played a big part in helping bring a number of the players together on the night.

“The next stage is to set up a committee and any of those who attended on the night or would like to join and become part of that committee, should contact the club.”

Any former players who are interested in joining and/or are interested in putting themselves forward to be on the committee are asked to contact Player Welfare Officer, Alice Scruton via alicescruton@wakefieldwildcats.co.uk
