St Helens is a rugby league mad town, but other sports are starting to elbow their way into the population’s sporting consciousness.

With recent success in darts and semi-professional football, Mark Hayes is looking to use these achievements to propel sports at a grassroots level and set up the future of St Helens for success.

European youth championship boxer and footballer Liv Hussey is hoping that the work that Mark is doing can propel her own career and help St Helens launch into the sporting stratosphere.
