Fresh on the back of another successful England Talent Pathway session last week, we are proud to announce that the RFL has rated out ETP scheme as “Outstanding”.
We were assessed last week during the half-term sessions and the RFL’s National Player Development Manager, Tony Fretwell, came through today with our results – which were of the highest possible grade.
We are proud of the work that we have put in on the training field to deliver the results – not for grades like this one – though it’s certainly nice to receive them – but for the kids who come through our system and are always ready to learn.
We are proud that two Bradford lads (and a whole load of Bradford lasses) are playing for England in both the men’s & women’s World Cups at the moment, that there are plenty of Bradford kids in the Super League, that there are Bradford-born players in the Bulls Academy and that our community clubs are thriving.
These players are successful because of countless hours of work put in and the systems that are in place – of which the England Talent Pathway is a crucial part.
So here’s to the next year – keep an eye out for announcements of our next course!
