GREENOCK Wanderers were delighted to receive a generous donation of hand sanitiser from club coach Leon Trayling.

Leon, who is director of Ishga, a company that specialises in skincare products, donated over 50 litres of hand sanitiser to the club, a huge help during challenging times.

Leon currently coaches the club's Micros section, the youngest group currently playing rugby at Greenock Wanderers, joining the coaching team after his daughter joined the club.

Club development officer AJ Guthrie said: "We are extremely grateful of Leon's support, his donation was extremely generous and helped the club in a time when it was badly needed.

"Things are growing here at Greenock Wanderers again, with nearly 50 new players joining GWRFC since our return to rugby.

"This was hugely helped by our Minis and Micros registration day held a few weeks ago.

"Our next move is to host a similar event for S1 to under-16s who would like to play rugby at Greenock Wanderers.

"We welcome all current, new and returning players and members and are committed to supporting every player's development at the club.

"All of this would not be possible without the support from our amazing network of sponsors, volunteers, coaches and parents.

"All of whom have made the return to rugby as smooth as possible with their huge level of support."

When asked what the future holds for Greenock Wanderers, AJ said: "I am extremely excited for what we have coming in the next few weeks and months.

"We have big plans for the development of rugby within Inverclyde and want to give back to the community surrounding us, with opportunities for all!"

The club has seen wholesale changes to the set up of teams, committee members and club officials.

Director of rugby John E Dyer said: "It's wonderful to see the enthusiasm for rugby returning to the local area and seeing the club benefit from this in all aspects.

"Our Minis and Micros section is growing from strength to strength under the leadership of new Minis co-ordinator Kevin Murray.

"Our midis section also continues to grow, with teams from S1 to under-18 all growing strong squads, most notably our under-18s, under head coach Robert Mitchell, who looking like one of the strongest under-18s sides in the country!

"Senior teams are also enjoying their return, under new head coaches Grant Sweenie and Les Wilson.

"They have been a breath of fresh air into the club, even giving their time to coach our ladies team who are still searching for a new head coach."
