Hunslet Foundation Development Officer Michael Nuttall has wasted no time on returning from furlough by renewing the `Beeston project’, which is aimed primarily at directing children to local amateur club Beeston Broncos.

He is busy visiting schools, together with new recruit Tyler Finister, an enthusiastic student who has been seconded from Leeds Beckett University and who is on placement full-time at Hunslet until December.

Michael said: “We are putting together an event in July to complete the Beeston schools programme and we are launching a similar project in Middleton in September.

“In addition we have continued our partnership with Middleton St Marys and Gildersome Primary – both schools have committed to a whole academic year of coaching, from September and running all the way to July 2022.”
