After a successful opening promotion day at Culloden Academy, recruitment for the Community League has continued in Inverness schools over the last 6 days.
Last Thursday and Friday saw pupils from the Inverness Royal Academy being given the chance to sign up for the Sharks to play in the 2014 Highland Academy Community League season. Over 35 people put their name down to be involved. This enthusiasm was carried through to the Inverness High School yesterday with over 25 pupils signing up to play for the Predators. Earlier today it was Millburn Academy’s turn and once again around 30 people showed interest in the Eagles side for 2014.
On all of the promotion days many of the current Highland Wildcats players were on hand to help with recruitment. Youth Development Officer, Robbie Paulin said, “The Wildcats guys were really helpful in the promotion days. Jordan Anderson at Culloden did a great job at pulling in a lot of the older pupils in the school. There was a lot of enthusiasm from Loudon Wheeler at the IRA and Colin Hamilton, Mark Pyper, Ewan Sime, Stephen McMeechan and Joshua Fox at the Inverness High School. Today at Millburn Stig McArthur, Haris Ryalls and Alasdair Howie brought in a lot of great athletes to the team too. It wouldn’t have been so successful if it wasn’t for these guys helping out.”
Tomorrow is the last promotion day and this time the recruitment takes place in Charleston Academy for the Knights.
