Calderdale College Students are Yorkshire Champions14th December 2011
Calderdale College Students Dean Hoodless and Judd Fairbank were part of the successful Elland RLFC under 18s team who won the B.A.R.L.A. Yorkshire Cup - Final Under 18's match last Saturday.
To get to the final the team had to beat teams from across the region including Odsal Sedburgh, York Acorn and Cottingham Tigers. The final against West Hull, at the Wakefield Wildcats ground, was a close match with the final score of 14-10 to Elland.
Dean Hoodless, a Level 2 BTEC in Sport student, who plays wing for Elland and also the Calderdale College squad commented how it had been a busy year for the squad playing in the Yorkshire Cup, Halifax Cup and the League Cup. He added how pleased he was to have been part of the winning team and hopes to go on and play in the over 18’s next year.
