Wildcats donate signed ball
to Harriers fundraising
Press Report - 10th March 2000
Wakefield Trinity Wildcats have donated a signed hall to Wakefield Harriers AC. The ball will be the main prize in a fund-raising effort launched recently by the Harriers.
The draw will take place at the Spring Open athletics meeting which will be held at Thornes Park Athletics Track on Sunday, April 16.
Wakefield Harriers who are currently trying to attract a main sponsor, are synonymous with top-class athletics, underlined by the promotion last year of the senior women's team in the UK League.
Wakefield Trinity and Wakefield Harriers share a long history that can be traced back to the late 19th century.
A book detailing the first 100 years of Wakefield Harriers is available in the Wildcats shop in George Street.
Wildcats winger Paul Sampson is a member of Wakefield Harriers, and full-back Martyn Holland spent much of his pre-pro' rugby days with the Harriers.
