The Sporting Heroes project first contacted the team at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats in April 2010 as a way of reaching out to the different rugby, football and crickets clubs across West Yorkshire. From initial consultation, plans were put in place for the project team to capture memories of both supporters and players alike.
Working with members of staff at Wakefield Wildcats, the project was able to attend a home game on 13th June 2010 to capture 'snapshot' memories of supporters and interview veteran players and fans at a special evening event on 3rd November 2010.
Sporting Heroes would like to thank Wakefield Wildcats, especially Davide Longo and Rob Light at the University of Huddersfield, for their co-operation and for helping the project achieve its aims.
