Fax make College link-up official

HALIFAX have formalised their partnership with Calderdale College, giving the club access to the venue’s state-of-the-art new sports facilities.

The College - whose rugby league Academy is headed by Fax assistant coach Lee Greenwood - will be Fax’s ‘Education Partner’.

“Calderdale as an area has been missing facilities like these and it’s great to be the first sporting club to get involved,” said Fax marketing manager Matt Turner.

“Our partnership with Calderdale College has grown a lot and we intend to build on that.”

The partnership offers Calderdale College matchday exposure, close links to youth development at the club and access for students to gain work experience.

Michael Ainsworth, for the College, said, “We are delighted to be able to help Halifax by providing them with a training base.

“The partnership is much more than that as there are benefits for both parties, especially our students who will get work experience and real life opportunities”.
