NZCT has awarded College Old Boys Rugby League Club Charitable Trust $4,000 towards new playing uniforms for their youngest members aged under 6 and their Premier Team. “New outfits give our players a sense of pride and a desire to play better as a team when they are outfitted in a presentable, neat uniform”, says Margaret Watene, Life Member of the club.
“A lot of children under 6 years join our club. This year at least 17 have registered. Thanks to NZCT’s grant we can provide our youngest players with jerseys, socks and shorts.”
The Premier Team will also receive new uniforms. “We are in the process of having them made. We are very grateful to NZCT for their financial support.”
The Church College Old Rugby League Club was established in 1976 in Hamilton by three students who attended Church College of New Zealand (CCNZ) in 1958. Its purpose was to reactivate members who enjoyed playing Rugby League. In 2008 the name was changed to College Old Boys Rugby League Club Charitable Trust to include all colleges within New Zealand. Since the start of the club, many boys and girls have grown and developed their sporting skills and teamwork.
