Junior Players had opportunity to ask questions through the evening and also get autographs and photos with the players. The most asked question was ,"What happened to your foot?" as Marc was recovering from a stress fracture in an orthopaedic boot. Perhaps the most awkward but easily answered question was, "If you could be a Premiership footballer would you give up rugby?"
Sale Sharks had also kindly donated two tickets to their Premiership match against London Welsh on 21st September. Phil Croft, one of the club U11's coaches, was the lucky winner drawn out by the players and presented with his prize.
Port Junior Chairman Mark Davies said, "Once again, through our Community Connections relationship with Sale Sharks, we have been given the opportunity to inspire young rugby players in the town through meeting and talking to the professional players. Being able to meet and chat to players at the top of the game in England is a fantastic opportunity for the youth teams to learn and understand what it takes to reach that level ,and also to reinforce the ethos of rugby at all levels".
The Player Appearance at Ellesmere Port RUFC is one of a number of benefits the organisation receives as being part of the Connections Partnership. If you would like to find out more, please contact our Community Department by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
