The Steve Prescott Foundation have expressed their thanks that the inaugural NCL Charity Shield match will be named after the foundation.
Leigh Miners Rangers and West Hull will face each other at Stanningley, Leeds, tomorrow afternoon and the clash between the Conference Challenge Trophy winners and NCL Champions promises to be a great encounter.
“The National Conference League has always supported Steve and his foundation,” said SPF Chairman Mike Denning.
“It’s a fantastic gesture from the NCL that has been well received by Steve’s family and the charity.
“We would like to thank all associated with the league and are looking forward to what promises to be an exciting game between two great teams.
“Support like this will ensure Steve’s name will always be remembered in the Rugby League community.”
SPF Ambassador Garry Schofield OBE will present the winners with the Shield and all funds raised on the day will go to the Steve Prescott Foundation.
