Bamber Bridge were the first club to experience the amateur rugby league club roll out session last night.

There were 51 coaches, parents and players in the under 13’s squad attending and 46 had never attended a mental health awareness session before.

All those attending listened to former players Paul Sculthorpe, Martin Crompton, Will Stringer and Jimmy Gittins providing messages of mental fitness.

The feedback messages included “very impressive”, “excellent really enjoyed the session”, “it is very clear what you have to do to stay mentally fit”

Listen out for Phil Cooper (co-founder) of State of Mind and Ian Sibbit on Yorkshire radio’s rugby league hour with Richard Stead at 18:00 tonight.
