Every academy shirt will have the #RC13 logo.
Those closely following the early results of the Huddersfield Giants Under 19s and Under 16s may have noticed a couple of anomalies in the team sheets and the playing shirts that the teams were wearing.
For the next two seasons, both the Senior and Junior Academy players requested the following two things to celebrate the life Ronan Costello:
1. No player in either of our Academy teams will wear the number 13 shirt
2. Every shirt has the #RC13 logo and a Costello 13 logo as part of the design (As seen in the images).
Huddersfield Giants believe that this is fantastic gesture from the young players at our club.
Giants Player Welfare Manager, Andy Jordan, commented: “As a group of staff we are immensely proud that the group of players requested this tribute to the life of Ronan. It is something we are fully behind and it gives us the opportunity to continue to celebrate Ronan’s life and it goes without saying that we think of Ronan each and every day.”
The Giants would also like to pay reference to a couple of fundraising activities that are taking place in honour of Ronan Costello.
Our Player Performance Manager, Steve Hardisty, will be running the London Marathon in April, whilst raising funds for the Headway Charity. There will be a bucket collection at our home game against Leeds Rhinos for this and Steve’s JustGiving page can be found here: www.justgiving.com/Ronan13
Ronan's auntie Susan Morgan is also raising funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. You can find full details here: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/susan-morgan7
The Giants Under 19s are next in action this Sunday 12th March against London Broncos at Lockwood Park, kick-off 2pm.
