Heritage polo shirts can now be found in our stores in dedication to the Heritage numbers which were announced by the club last week.
Club Historian, Lee Robinson, has been working on the project with years of research which has included many hours in the library, time at the rugby league archives at Huddersfield University and hours delving through years of Trinity's past programmes.
He came up with 1,346 names of past players that have worn the Trinity first team jersey since 1895. After the initial fifteen players made their rugby league debuts for Trinity on 7th September 1895, each new debutant has been given the next number for the following one hundred and nineteen years.
Trialists have not been included as their name were not often known and invariably played just one game in the early years, before disappearing back to their amateur or rugby union clubs.
The project expanded further with Wildcats CEO, Kath Hetherington putting the idea together of having a range of polo shirts, each dedicated to one of the heritage numbers for that extra personal touch.
A number of the polo's have now landed in store at the Ridings Centre this week and cost £24.99, current and past players include Wally Lewis (982), Neil Fox (629) and Danny Kirmond (1280), they are the perfect gift for your loved ones this Christmas.
If anyone would like to access to the full list of numbers, please email Lee on firstname.lastname@example.org.
