“We would like to thank the Soldiers League Committee for their kind donation towards the tour that was received by me today. Always great to have you guys on side supporting Army Rugby League and it's players.”
Soldiers League has been supporting the UKAF RL, especially the Army Rugby League members, during their tour to the Armed Forces World Cup in Australia. We were delighted when they secured 3rd place in the play-off final. The full details of the games can be found on the UKAF Pitchero site. The match report for the play off final, and links to the other games are at: http://www.pitchero.com/clubs/ukarmedforcesrugbyleague/news/ukaf-3618-new-zealand-defence-forces-1877660.html
We are also proud that five of the party are members of Soldiers League and we were delighted to make them a grant to cover out of pocket expenses. The money has now been delivered and arrived at the time when the strain on their pockets is probably at its greatest. The five members of Soldiers League to receive this donation are:
We wish them well on the final part of their tour and a safe journey home.
