Wednesday’s activity saw three players from each of the WPL clubs meet in Newtown for photographers to conduct the initial stages of piecing together the Digital Toolkit. The sports photographers took various shots of all the players ready to encapture the next staged designs of the toolkit. Players arrived thorugh the course of the day at Latham Park and were fantastic in providing exactly what the photographers and the WPL wished of them.
WPL Community Promotions Officer, Steve Lloyd stated, "It was a fantastic experience and the players were great throughout the day. They provided exactly what we envisaged for the photo shoot and ready for the final product."
"It was great to see the players enjoying themeselves and I was impressed with the positive comments from the players who could see how much this would increase the brand profile and perception of the league and its clubs."
"On behalf of the FAW and WPL I would like to thank everyone who attended and can't wait for the clubs to greatly benefit from this wonderful product"
