Wakefield centre Reece Lyne has been given the inaugural RFL president award in recognition of his mentoring work with young offenders.

The 27-year-old is one of of several Super League players who have given time and expertise to support a ground-breaking project at Wetherby Young Offenders Institute delivered by the Rugby League Cares charity.

The England international has also developed a mentoring programme of his own with young offenders in Hull whose behaviour has disrupted their own lives and affected the lives of others.

RFL president Tony Adams said: “There are times we all need someone to turn to. Reece is showing young people, at their lowest ebb, that prison isn’t the end of the world, that they can still fulfil their potential and look to a brighter future.

“When the Wetherby mentoring project was getting off the ground, Reece was identified as the kind of personality who could lead and drive the project from the players’ side.

“For their part young people at Wetherby have learned to trust Reece and confide in him, and it’s testimony to the strength of their bond that he’s been asked to continue his support. Staff at Wetherby have noticed positive changes too since Reece has been mentoring them.

“By sharing his own experiences and listening to what worries them, Reece is making an invaluable contribution to the lives of young people.”
