Featherstone Rovers have announced they are launching a Learning Disability Rugby League team after a successful taster session.
However, due to the current climate, they will not be holding sessions until the current restrictions around the coronavirus have been lifted.
The team will be coached by Community Development Officer Jim Dyson.
He told the club website: “I think it is great that we can announce the launch of our new learning disability side. We have a great working relationship with local care groups and charities, working with individuals with learning disabilities on a regular basis.
“Many of them are massive Rovers fans so it’s great that they are going to be able to sport the famous Jersey!”
The club have also confirmed Beth Courtman as its assistant coach.
Dyson added: “LDRL is all about giving people opportunities to follow their dreams and having known Beth for some time I know she enjoys watching games a lot more than playing.
“She had a great relationship with last season’s Head Coach and would give him her team sheet before every game and her dream was to be a coach.
“It gives me enormous pleasure to announce Beth as my Assistant Coach and she will definitely be up for the job!”
