Warrington partner up with North Wales Crusaders

Warrington have announced a partnership with League 1 club North Wales Crusaders for 2015 season.

Players from the Wolves squad will be available on dual-registration to the Wrexham-based outfit, who will also have access to the Super League club’s state-of-the-art training facilities at the University of Chester, Warrington campus.

The news comes after Swinton, previously linked with the Wolves for the past few years, revealed that they were to go it alone.

Crusaders head coach Anthony Murray said: “This agreement is a great boost for us as we target a successful 2015. The facilities that Warrington have made available to us will allow us to prepare our squad properly for the season ahead and will give us the best chance of success.

“To be able to call on the support of Warrington through the dual registration system is really important as well. We’ve had some lengthy chats about both clubs’ philosophies on dual registration, having both had partnerships in the past that we’ve learned a lot from and we’re all comfortable we know the way to get the best out of the system.

“We’ve built a squad here at Crusaders that we believe will see us challenging for honours, but to have that in our locker is a massive benefit to us.”


The partnership will be kicked off with an exhibition game between a Warrington Wolves representative side, made up primarily of the U19s, and a North Wales Crusaders first team at Eirias Parc in Colwyn Bay on Sunday 18 January at 12pm.
