Broncos spread the word in Bushey

Today, 10:48 AM

London Broncos have recently begun a coaching programme in both primary and secondary schools in and around Bushey in Hertfordshire.

The idea of the project is to raise awareness that the Broncos are now based in the area, with their training ground at Bushey Sports Club, as well as looking for the next generation of rugby league players.

John Keyes, Player Welfare Manager at London Broncos, has led the sessions and has been assisted by a number of first team players, Keyes said: “It has been really good to get the players involved. It seems to raise the level of interest when the young people find out that there are real players involved in the coaching.”

Helen Hopkins, Community Sports Officer at Hertsmere Council said: “Hertsmere Borough Council are excited to be working in partnership with London Broncos who are providing high quality coaching in schools in Bushey.

“The club’s work has been praised by all involved and we are looking forward to working together for many years to come. Well done and thank you to the Broncos team.”

London Broncos set to donate to the Danny Jones fund

Yesterday, 12:15 PM

London Broncos Rugby League are set to donate to the Danny Jones fund after this Sunday’s game with Featherstone Rovers.

The club will donate £2 for every ticket sold and will hold a bucket collection at Sunday’s game, where London Broncos host Featherstone Rovers at The Hive (kick-off 3pm). The players and staff will also donate to the fund while the London Broncos Chairman David Hughes will personally donate £1000. There will be a one minute silence before the game to show respects for Danny.

A Broncos spokesperson said: “Everyone at London Broncos would like to extend their deepest sympathies to the family, friends and team-mates of Danny Jones following the tragic news. Our thoughts are also with the Keighley club at this time. The news touched everyone at the club and as a club we were keen to help add to the fund which has been set up by the RFL Benevolent Fund.”

The fundraising page, set up by the RFL Benevolent Fund, has already surpassed £40,000 in under 48 hours. You can pledge your support here www.justgiving.com/dannyjones29 or donate in person on Sunday at The Hive.

The RFL confirmed on Sunday evening that Keighley Cougars player Danny Jones passed away after suffering a suspected cardiac arrest during a League 1 match against London Skolars. He leaves behind a wife and five-month old twins.

Jones who was 29, collapsed after being replaced early in the match and was treated by the match doctor and paramedics at the ground before being taken to the Royal Free Hospital. Despite extensive efforts to resuscitate him, Jones passed away at the hospital.

Henderson: We need to be better this Sunday

Yesterday, 11:04 AM

London Broncos head coach Andrew Henderson says his side will need to improve to beat Featherstone Rovers on Sunday at The Hive (kick-off 3pm).

Henderson oversaw his side score six tries in defeating Hunslet 32-12 but says the side need to stick to the game plan and drop the silly errors and ill-discipline which allowed the Hawks into the game.

“It was really important that we got the two points last weekend against Hunslet,” he said. “As a side it’s really important that we keep in touch with the top four.”

“It’s always going to be a challenge away from home but I was really pleased with the attitude and character that was on show from the team, which was something I challenged them on during the week.

“At times when we executed the plan we played some good football but too often we come up with some silly errors and ill-discipline that kept Hunslet in the game and I felt we could have made it an easier afternoon for ourselves had we been a bit more respectful of possession.

“We’re going to have to be really on our game, very focused and determined and put in one of our best performances of the season if we want to get a result against Featherstone.”
