We've had the best part of £25,000 in funding since we started from commercial and grant income, almost all of which we have ploughed into development with the help of the RFL. In just 5 years we have generated international players at U18 and student levels, several with pro/academy contracts and multiple scholarship players. Other Midlands clubs have done the same.
Now, we have had to scale back significantly but we will still plough on. Fortunately we are close enough to the heartlands to enable us to tap into games and leagues in Yorkshire. I am concerned about the implosion of junior competitions in the Midlands that seems to be occurring since the RFL pulled out.
