Wolves in the Playoffs – The Community View

Once again, the Community were hard at work behind the scenes on Saturday afternoon, as Saints hosted Warrington Wolves in the Betfred Super League Playoffs at the Totally Wicked Stadium!

As always, St Helens Mobile Food Pantry were situated outside the Totally Wicked Stadium again, as they have been for every home game at the Totally Wicked Stadium in 2023. A massive well done to the amazing work that the team to do, as we continue to support our Community together.

The Foundation were last weeks Match Sponsors, and were situated in the middle of the 1873 Lounge, with the Foundation inviting those who have supported us this year. Community Club Ambassador Billy Dillon hosted our guests, who can be seen pictured below with Veteran Dave Swift, who recently undertook a 100 mile walk in aid of the SDCF.

The amazing A-Star Angels then warmed up the crowd, as the atmosphere began to build ahead of a massive Elimination clash between the local rivals. The team then headed to the tunnel to prepare for the teams to come out!

Before the game got underway, we had flags waved in front of the West Stand, as the players walked onto the pitch ahead of the Semi-Final. The A-Star Saints Angels then also headed to the West Stand to prepare for the game.

During the half-time interval, we had community clubs playing in front of the West Stand, next to Saints’ crossbar challenge. The A-Star Saints Angels then performed another routine during the half-time break, before heading back in front of the West Stand ahead of the second half.

The SCDF table also got invited outside during the interval, as they had their photo taken on the pitch as the match sponsor.

At the end of the game, club legends James Roby and Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook got a final farewell from the Saints fans, in their final ever home game at the Totally Wicked Stadium, with both set to retire from Rugby League at the end of the 2023 season.
