Warrington Wolves have signed five 16-year old players on professional contracts enabling them to play in the Foundation League with eventual progression to the Junior Academy. The Foundation League is the U16s League which is a follow on from the U16s Scholarship Programme, it is a four game competition and on completion of that is a pathway to the Junior Academy.
The players are Paul Reynolds, a back rower and Chris Riley a utility player both from Woolston Rovers ARLFC, Martin McMullen, a back rower from Hensingham ARLFC in Whitehaven, Ben Harrison, a forward from Barrow Island ARLFC in Barrow and Craig White, a half back from Rylands ARLFC.
Junior Academy Coach Gary Chambers commented on his new signings, "Paul Reynolds has an excellent attitude to the game and is a hard working backrower, Martin McMullen is a very strong and aggressive player who offloads well in the tackle, Ben Harrison has an excellent workrate combined with an excellent attitude, Chris Riley has the ability to play at numerous positions and is fast and elusive and Craig White is a clever player who controls the game well. All are vital to the progression of the Junior Academy and they all bring qualities that will add to the team."
Head Coach Paul Cullen commented, "We are delighted to capture these talented young players who's signatures compliment the volume and quality of work we conduct behind the scenes. The production of our own talent through to senior level is on track."
