Halifax RLFC is calling for schools and community groups around Calderdale to pioneer their new young people’s programme aimed at emotional wellbeing in young people, lead by club ambassador Luke Ambler.

Developed from Give Us A Try and #ANDYSMANCLUB, the scheme will target under 24’s, with an aim to dramatically improve their self-esteem and develop confidence across the board through physical activities and trust exercises. “We raised so much for schools in cashback with Give Us A Try – well over a grand. Now it’s time to focus on helping the young people” said prop forward, Ambler.

“Hopefully targeting people under 24 and growing their strength and resilience will make a difference if they ever do find themselves in a difficult position”

Farrell sings for the town

A loyal fan stood proudly on the Wembley pitch just two weeks ago, adorned in blue and white with his fist on his chest, singing for all of Halifax.

As part of Lizzie Jones’ Challenge Cup Final Choir, Rick Farrell represented Halifax RLFC so well they invited him for a solo performance of the same song, Abide By Me, on the pitch at the last home game against Oldham Roughyeds on Sunday.

Rick told us “It means everything to me. Fax is the one consistent hobby in my life, and when the good wins come it’s like walking on air.”
