  1. They will play winter & summer mate. They will be here for 12 months; longer if they choose too and their studies allow! The aim of GRLA is to provide regular rugby league at a higher level than they're accustomed too. The Pennine League may divide opinion, but it is likely a higher standard than the Serbian comp. Coupled with that, Queensbury's winter team is young and used to bring on players into open age. The Pennine League hasn't done harm to our 3 Aberdeen Warriors youngsters who are playing at King Cross Park this winter! If anything, it'll have provided them a steely edge for summer!
  2. Just a quick update on the current situation involving Vladimir & Rajko - last week GRLA met with representatives from Queensbury ARLFC, a Bradford-based team who have a winter team in the Pennine League & a summer team in the Yorkshire Men's League. They have agreed to accommodate both the young Serbian players in September! They will also provide a playing experience for a 3rd player we are hoping to get from Easterhouse Panthers, Scotland! Please, please continue to help with Vladimir's GoFund cause on the link below to help us make this a reality: https://www.gofundme.com/vladimir-from-serbia-to-england Thanks again guys!

  4. Hi mate! Many thanks for your kind words and great to hear that you are keen to support these efforts! The current total raised is £687 - a fantastic effort given that it was the Xmas period when this drive began! Regarding Rajko, it's great to hear that you'd also support him and we'll take on board your words of advice. In the meantime please be sure to keep following GRLA on Facebook, Instagram or by website!
  5. We aren't pushing Rajko as part of a separate fundraising campaign, merely suggesting that the efforts of our existing campaign is creating interest from other Serbian players whilst getting Rajko's video footage out there. His situation is very different from that of Vladimir anyway. Nevertheless, it is hugely encouraging to see that young Serbian players are willing to access the GRLA route to come to England and play/study!
  6. Hi all! Firstly, I hope you all had a fantastic Xmas! Secondly, thanks to the Xmas goodwill of many people Vladimir has managed to reach just over 10% of his target (£637 to be exact) in only 6 days! This is remarkable and we are excited by the progress of Vladimir's cause! It is an ongoing campaign and will continue to run up until the beginning of September 2017 so please continue to share & donate if you can! Perhaps off the back of Vladimir's campaign, another player of Red Star Belgrade & Serbia U18s/21s - Rajko Trifunovic - is looking to join GRLA. His video footage is here: https://m.youtube.co...Tjp52EKg&sns=fb

  8. Hi guys. I have posted the same message on another forum, and also on the General Forums under Vladimir's campaign to play in England, but I also feel it is appropriate here. My name is Luke and I'm new to this forum as somebody who posts, but have often read topics on here out of interest over the years. I thought now would be an ideal time to post given that I've started up Global Rugby League Academy. GRLA is designed to give players from emerging countries (predominantly based in RLEF affiliated nations) and areas within the UK a 12 month chance to come to the nostalgic 'heartlands' of rugby league in England to play (we are based in Halifax, West Yorkshire). Our players will study at a partner college/university, whilst also playing for them. They will also play for a local amateur club, access potential trials with pro/semi-pro clubs and complete RFL match official & coaching badges. The hope is to create rugby league knowledge in these players so they can return home and further develop the game. GRLA started as a pilot scheme in September 2015 with a German player, a Belgian player and a Scottish player. This September we took on 3 young Scottish players from the Aberdeen Warriors club. Vladimir Milutinovic, the Serbian player in question, is someone who wishes to access GRLA in September 2017 and we have helped him to set up this GoFund campaign. If you are interested in GRLA then please keep up to date with us on Facebook (Global Rugby League Academy), Instagram (globalrugbyleagueacademy) or on the website below: www.globalrugbyleagueacademy.com
