RUGBY PARTNERSHIP WITH SALFORD REDS
Manchester High have formed a partnership with local rugby team, Salford Red Devils.
Over the past year, groups of girls from Prep and Senior School have been taken for fun taster and training sessions at the AJ Bells Stadium in Eccles where they have practised their rugby skills with trainers from the Red Devils. The girls have also been invited to watch matches at the stadium.
Miss Rowley said: “This has been an exciting opportunity for the girls throughout the last year. Having support from Salford Red Devils has enabled our girls to develop their skills further. They have even had a taste of contact rugby in lessons which has been great to watch as for many this was totally out of their comfort zone. I am looking forward to seeing where we can now take rugby within school.”
A group of senior girls trained with Salford Red Devils at School recently, and Sky Sports were in attendance for a special feature on the partnership. You can watch the feature through this link.
