Castleford Tiger’s and England international Luke Gale used the launch of Sport Society Success as a good opportunity to highlight and co-launch his ambitious plans for #KickingFor GrassRoots in 2019.
Kicking For Grass Roots plans to visit amateur clubs across every region in England next year. They hope to raise the profile of Rugby League and attendances as well as inspire and motivate young people.
The KFG Directors has picked three clubs to support across Yorkshire including Elland ARLFC in Calderdale, Wisbey Warriors in Bradford and Bentley ARLFC in Doncaster. These areas were supported as these were the communities and fans who have supported Luke throughout his careers. This work will include helping clubs raise funding, running festivals and summer camps and helping to raise the profile through social media.
