SAINTS copyDESTINATION; ST HELENS. We kick off 2017 with a trip to our friends in the North.

Cornish Rebels RLFC can confirm that we will travel to St Helens on the last weekend in January to play a combined St Helens Academy/Reserves team as part of their pre-season preparations.

The fixture, scheduled for January 29th will see the game kicking off at 11:30, after which, the players, staff and coaches from the Rebels will attend the Saints pre-season fixture versus Castleford Tigers.

The Cornish-club’s Chairman John Beach said “this is a huge honour and opportunity for everyone involved at the club and shows how our relationship with St. Helens has developed over the last 18 months. There’s a real buzz amongst the boys and its a fantastic way to kick off 2017.”

St Helens Academy Coach and Foundation RL Coach Ian Talbot said “we look forward to welcoming our partners from the Cornish Rebels to St Helens for a pre season run out against our academy and reserves players. The game highlights the strength of our partnership as it continues to develop.”

The two clubs will also be coming together in January to deliver even more free teacher training in Cornwall as part of the Rebels’ Embed the Pathway Programme.

Player sponsorship for the trip is available at £99 per player, which will help towards the cost of accommodation and travel. PLUS! You will receive the following….

  • – Player sponsorship for the whole of the 2017 campaign – your business logo in the home matchday programmes as well as on our website. We will also interact with you on Social Media throughout the season.
  • – We have a number of St Helens Academy match-worn away shirts which we will include as a free gift for your support! These are 100% authentic shirts from 2011 (a year which saw Tommy Makinson and Jonny Lomax turn out for the academy, among others) and are provided well loved and worn; some with match tears and all! They are very small in sizing (Academy size!) and are extremely rare. We have a limited quantity, so these are available on a first-come first-served basis.
