The Newcastle Knights had its very own cheer squad at training on Wednesday when a group of the Club’s supporters from Witmore Enterprises visited Knights headquarters.
Witmore Enterprises is an organisation all about creating pathways for people with a disability.
The group from Singleton travelled to Mayfield Wests as part of the community participation program the organisation runs for its clients with intellectual disabilities.
Witmore Enterprises Day Programs manager, Jenny Doran, said the group involved in the community participation program has a meeting each week to discuss activities they wish to organise.
The group unanimously decided a trip to meet the Knights would be a dream come true.
“The program that I run is all about community participation and meeting people’s goals and dreams," Jenny said.
“So part of meeting their goals and dreams is meeting their heros.”
The group, decked out in red blue, was side of field to watch the team as it prepared for Monday’s clash against the Storm in Melbourne.
After training, the players were then on hand to sign autographs and chat to the dedicated fans.
“It’s just been so exciting,” Jenny said.
“It has met everyone’s expectations, we’re so happy.
“The Knights and the team are just so lovely, and really accepting people.
"They’ve really been so nice to us,” she said.
