LMS meets learning disability players
Saints forward Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook joined Rugby AM and teammates Jack Ashworth, Joseph Paulo and Luke Douglas down at the Totally Wicked Stadium to meet the club’s Learning Disability Rugby League [LDRL] team during Learning Disability Week before LMS had a sit down with big Saints fan 'JP'!
Super League and the Rugby Football League (RFL) recently partnered with the national social care charity Community Integrated Care to form a ground-breaking inclusive sports programme for people with learning disabilities and autism.
The ‘Community Integrated Care Learning Disability Super League’ gives people with learning disabilities the opportunity to play an adapted version of Rugby League, in a series of high-profile festivals and events. The programme aims to promote the development of skills, confidence and positive experiences for people with learning disabilities, and make a major statement about social inclusion.
And fresh from the LDRL team gracing the Anfield turf at Dacia Magic Weekend, Louie and his Saints mates popped into the Totally Wicked Stadium to surprise our Saints Community Development Foundation’s LDRL team and he also caught up with huge Saints fan, John Paul – better known as ‘JP’!
