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:

Very good Luke i wish you every success. I donated a few quid to Vladimir and hope he succeeds with your organisations help.Working with players from emerging nations is fantastic you guys could play a huge part in promoting the sport in emerging nations and go down in history if you produce players that go on to become idols for kids in emerging nations hence lifting the popularity of our sport in these emerging nations.

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:

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:

Donated another 10 Pounds by the way. I see the total is at 717 pounds not bad at all for such a short space of time, only 29 days old the campaign is.
