Halifax Panthers Academy Celebration!
The Halifax Panthers have enjoyed another fantastic year of partnership with Calderdale College both on and off the field and we want to give the main stage of our HUGE derby game this Sunday to credit the brilliant work the team has done this year! The academy have enjoyed victories against the likes of Leeds Rhino’s & Hull KR and welcomed teams from afar such as Coleg y Cymoedd, all in all having a brilliant season in which numbers have grown and the introduction of Women’s Development Days have taken place! Amongst the current crop of players going into year 2 we will welcome a whole new group to the college this season and they will be having their official signing on event this Sunday down at the Shay before their role models take the stage come 3pm Sunday!
Be sure to congratulate and celebrate them when you see them at the game this Sunday and we look forward to cheering loudly from the stands when the announcement of the team is made prior to Kick-off!
It is fantastic to finally be able to get the Panthers Academy Squad down to the Shay to celebrate their success on and off the field this season. The Panthers Academy is growing again in September and the start of the development days has given the new recruits a taste of the pre-season they have to come!
– Andy Holleyhead Rugby Development Officer
It’s been a fantastic season for the Academy and all involved with it. It’s fantastic for the club to have the relationship that it does with Calderdale College and we look forward to continuing the development of the male and female teams as time goes on. We are working in many ways to grow the students on and off the field and to work with them in a sporting and life context to give them the best preparation possible for life after college!
– Jack Duffy Community Engagement Officer
A huge thank you to Daniel Jarvis, Andy Holleyhead & Craig Waterworth over at Calderdale for their vital efforts and commitment to the program and the teams and we look forward to continuing to grow as an academy off and on the field!
Students will have a unique price of £5 for this Sunday’s game against the Bradford Bulls.
Let’s Go Panthers!
