Windsor Join NSW Premier League
10th July 2007
The Panthers and Windsor Wolves have formed a reserve grade feeder joint venture to play in the NSW Premier League from next season onwards. The announcement was made today by Dick Prior, President of Windsor Rugby League Club Inc. and Michael Leary, General Manager of Penrith District Rugby League Football Club Ltd.The agreement is for an initial period of three years. The main points are:
"We see only plusses for our club in this," Dick Prior said. "We think it is a step up to another level. We will have the opportunity to work their way through Jim Beam, to Premier League we want to become an apprenticeship-style club, so that when a player comes to Windsor they will have the opportunity to work their way through Jim Beam and into 1st Grade. "The main advantage for Penrith is that it gives us a NSW Premier League side in which to keep our elite players and two competitions 'Premier League and Jim Beam Cup' through which our younger players can progress to the NRL," said Michael Leary "There are also considerable cost savings for us, which is good because of the need to maintain a strong squad for the new National Under 20s competition. The unified training will come into effect when players return to camp later this year."
This replaces Penrith reserve grade feeder arrangement with St Mary's.
