Huddersfield Giants Community Trust is delighted to announce the return of the Ronan Costello Festival after a break due to the global pandemic
The festival is a legacy created in memory of the late Ronan Costello, a Giants Academy and Brighouse Rangers forward who sadly lost his life while playing for the Giants U19s in 2016.
We last staged the event in 2019, with over 100 children in attendance. Four years to now, after an enforced break we currently have over 150 children in age groups U7-U9 from ambassador and community clubs associated to Huddersfield Giants coming together in a Rugby League festival.
The event is taking place at Leeds Road Playing Fields on Wednesday 13th September, from 18:00. On the evening there will be competitive small sided matches for both boys and girls to enjoy and play a part in Ronan’s legacy.
There is still time to sign your team, to take part in the festival, which includes a small donation that will help raise vital funds for Huddersfield Giants Community Trust. You can register via the link HERE. Please note closing date to enter is Friday 14th July.
Becky Colwell, Giants Rugby Development Officer adds: We are delighted to bring back the Festival after a short break. Having heard how in previous years the Rugby League family have come together, it is an exciting event I’m proud to be a part of. We have over 150 players attending but there is still time for teams to join. It would be amazing to see as many teams come together.”
We welcome spectators, family, friends, colleagues and fans of local Rugby League clubs to make a trip over.
Recently, it was 7 years since Ronan’s passing and the Trust is delighted to continue his legacy.
