Working hard for our rugby clubs

Following on from Phil Townsend’s letter last week I would like to reiterate that we are incredibly proud of all of the rugby teams within our district.

We have a long history of top-quality sport and want to support its continuation.

For some time we have been working with the Wakefield Wildcats Trust and the club to help them progress their plans for a new stadium and remain fully committed to continue doing this.

I can assure everyone involved with the Wildcats that we are working extremely hard to attract private sector investment and development at Newmarket. The Trust and the club want to provide top quality facilities for rugby league, its supporters and the public and we will continue in our role to support this wherever we can.
