No disrespect to the Chargers but they only have an under 15s team and nothing below so when this team is picked over by Sheffield you may not have any Youth and Junior teams, to be honest the read from previous posts is depressing with the teams and clubs folding, what happened to this great expansion plan, if we are blaming it all on funding then the RFL have a lot to answer for, so where is this 16% in 16-18 and 52% Open Age increase in participation when the game seems to be getting smaller, we may not even be able to say the M62 corridor soon
The Chargers actually run numerous junior teams from U8 all the way to U16. I'm guessing your misunderstanding stems from the fact that only the current U15 side is entered into the YJRL.
What should be the current U17 has been very successful up in Yorkshire for the past few seasons (topped their division for last few years) but was forced to fold after losing the core of the team to the local semi pro academy. I think a few of the remaining lads either play in U16s or travel up to Fev Lions.
These are mainly lads whose first love has been rugby league from an early age.
