Liverpool Lions RLFC has become the first ever club in Liverpool & Knowsley to achieve Clubmark status. The club has only been in existence for just over two years and with the long-term support of St Helens RLFC, now operates four junior age groups and service area/scholarship players.
Liverpool Lions – in particular Nick Moon, club treasurer and U15 head coach – have dedicated a lot of hard work and effort into achieving Clubmark and meeting the high standards required to secure the award. The club’s efforts were recognised when they received their certificate from first team regular Paul Clough at the Engage Super League game between St Helens and Wakefield Trinity Wildcats last Friday.
A huge congratulations is extended to all the volunteers at Liverpool Lions RLFC for all their commitment and enthusiasm to achieving Clubmark. John Farrell, Liverpool & Knowsley Service Area Co-ordinator said, “I am delighted that Liverpool Lions have been recognised for all their efforts.” “2011 is proving an excellent year for the club; following the award of City of Liverpool Young Volunteer of the Year to Katy Long, the club’s administrator and welfare officer.” “They provide a club where anyone can come along and feel welcome and be confident in the knowledge that all of the volunteers are dedicated to offering an enjoyable and safe environment. Liverpool Lions have set a very high standard at their club and that has been recognised by them achieving Clubmark status.”
