The rugby league community has rallied round once again to show its support for an injured player.

Dewsbury Moor ARFLC has been raising funds for club member Connor Squires who was seriously hurt in January.

The 18-year-old from Wyke fractured two vertebrae in his spine and snapped ligaments in his neck when he fell badly during a tackle.

Since then the club has raised more than £2,000, which Connor plans to put towards university fees.

The fundraising continued on Monday with a touch and pass tournament at the club in Heckmondwike Road.

The event featured more than 20 games and was followed by food and drinks at the clubhouse.
