Players at a thriving Northumberland rugby league club are getting kitted out for success thanks to a four-figure grant.

Cramlington Rockets RLFC has received £5,000 from the Banks Group, via its Banks Community Fund, for a new kit.

The award has been used to buy items ranging from training balls, bibs and medical kit through to tacklebags and shields, pitch markers and portable goals.

Chairman Jeff Ball said: “Equipment can be expensive, and we’ve always used everything we’ve got until it was absolutely beyond use.

“The generous support that the Banks Group has provided gives us the resources we need to keep taking the rugby league message out across the community.”
