Rugby League Side Train at Eirias

23rd January 2018

Categories: News

Rugby League Super League side St Helens prepared for their upcoming season in Colwyn Bay.

The Saints trained at Stadiwm Zip World at Parc Eirias, taking advantage of the state of the art facilities.

Training in hail, sleet, and snow, the players spent two days preparing for a preseason friendly at the pitch and also used the fitness suite and physio facilities.

Saints number seven Matty Smith said, “It is always good to get away with your teammates, and it grows your team spirit. Being away from your natural environment is important, and we had a good session. I was impressed with the facilities here – if not the weather – and we’re looking forward to the rest of the camp and the new season.”

Assistant Coach Jamahl Lolesi said, “This is a really good venue. We identified Parc Eirias as a place where we could get away together as a group, as it isn’t far away from home and the facilities are really good. To train away from home always freshens everyone up, as does training in the weather we would expect at the start of the season. We’d like to thank Parc Eirias for their help.”

Mally Tidswell is Conwy County Borough Council’s leisure manager at Parc Eirias and said, “The training facilities at Parc Eirias and Stadiwm Zip World are designed for team training camps. The recognition of having professional teams such as St Helens choose our venue and give such positive feedback is fantastic. The long-term plan is to attract more teams to experience the facilities here in Colwyn Bay.”
