NORTH WALES CRUSADERS have launched their schools engagement programme which began this week with Conrad Anderson and Hayley visiting six local schools.

Cefyn Mawr, Maes Y Llan, Eyton, Deinol and Acton schools all enjoyed visits from the community section including a t-shirt giveaway and a visit from the North Wales Crusaders mascot Collette the Crusaders.

The t-shirts featured the moto “In the community” engaging with the pupils on the ethos of Respect – Passion – Team and Family.

Commenting on the day, North Wales Crusaders chairman Ian Edwards said: “Developing the game locally at school age level is extremely important to us at North Wales Crusaders.

“We really hope that this is the start of us being able to grow the game at primary and secondary school ages  – Conrad Anderson and Allen Jones have devoted hours of time in bringing on the juniors and we are extremely grateful to them.

“Hopefully other schools will see how much the children enjoyed the recent event at The Rock and will get involved with us and showcase the game to the next generation of young star players.”
