MARK ROBINSON has been appointed as community liaison officer for North Wales Crusaders.
Robinson, who has previously worked with the Warrington Wolves Foundation, joined North Wales Crusaders in 2017 as head coach of the Crusaders’ under 18’s side but he will now begin his new role overseeing the community projects run by the club.
His new role will include:
- Overseeing development of the game in North Wales
- Working with the Crusaders junior section
- Involving and engaging the community with the club
- Setting up and running schools projects
On his appointment, Robinson said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity for me to develop a side of the club that was lacking last year.
“It’s something which has taken a lot of planning and will also take a lot of work but I’m excited to be taking it on.
“The main aim of the community side of the club is to not only boost our engagement with the community but to also bring more players through to the first-team.”
Crusaders general manager Andy Moulsdale added: “Mark’s appointment is another sign that the club is heading in the right direction.
‘It’s important that we continue the work which Allen Jones started, and after a tough 12 months on the community front we are now in a position to pick it up again.
“Mark will be working with the junior section of the club as well as working with schools and on engagement with the local community.
“I’m sure that he’ll do a fantastic job and will be a big help in getting or community projects started.”
