Speaking about the numbers, Castleford’s Head of Youth Development Darren Higgins said: “‘We are delighted with the number of players attending last week’s sessions for the launch of the programme.

“To have over 160 players over the course of the week is great recognition of how local clubs and players have bought into the programme.
