Is there a physio in the house? Wyke looking for volunteers

WYKE ARLFC are currently looking to recruit physiotherapists or qualified First Aiders to support their open age teams in the forthcoming 2012/13 winter season.

This role, says chairman Jason Whomack, would suit an outgoing, confident individual who can commit their time and effort every Saturday throughout the season, which runs from September to April.

“Please be aware that this is a hands on role and will involve meeting the players needs in regards to preventing and dealing with injuries throughout the game and therefore can be a physically demanding role at times,” he said.

“If you feel that you have the required skills and personality required to fulfil this role please don’t hesitate to contact me for more information.”

Whomack’s contact details are: 07774 429351 or email

“Please note, any expenses incurred by the individual due to performing the role will be met by the club,” he added.

“If you don’t possess an up to date First Aid qualification but are still interested in the role, please still get in touch as training can be arranged for the right individual.”

WYKE under eights played host to local team Odsal Sedbergh and the home team started well with an opening try from Jake Rayner on their way to a 40-24 success

Further touchdowns came from Harry Owen (2), Rayner, Jabriel Karolia and Macaulay Abrahams to leave the half-time score 24-12 in Wyke’s favour.

The second half started well with some fantastic defending from Wyke’s Joseph Fynn, Dylan Frith, Aiden Law, Riley Firth, Thomas Ockerby, and Harvey Dimbleby as Sedbergh only managed to add a further three tries in the second half.

Wyke managed to add a further four scores to their tally with a try for Sam Howarth, who scored his first of the season which earned him the biggest cheer of the match.

Harry Owen managed to go over for his hat trick of tries, Toby Schofield went over for his brace before a fantastic three-quarters length of the field run by Owen gave him his fourth try of the game to give Wyke their second win of the weekend.

WYKE under eights travelled to local rivals Wibsey to play in their Gala last Saturday morning, running out 40-12 winners.

Wyke defended well but they could not stop the home side sneaking through for a try.

On Wyke’s next touch of the ball Joseph Fynn managed to score in the top corner and this was followed with a try for Dylan Frith.

Wibsey brought the scores back to 16-12 after scoring twice, but Wyke managed a further two two tries before half time, through Toby Schofield and Riley Firth, leaving the score 24-12 in Wyke’s favour.

Wyke started the second half well with a succession of tries. Rayner completed his hat-trick and this was followed by a second try for both Frith and Schofield.

Aiden Law also got on the scoresheet scoring the final points of the game.

Wyke defended well in the second half with some awesome tackling from the whole team, especially Jabriel Korlia, Harry Owen and Harry Young that prevented Wibsey scoring any points in that period.
