Castleford Tigers can confirm that head of youth development Steve Gill has been appointed chief executive on an interim basis following the resignation of Steve Ferres on Tuesday.

Gill, 53, a former assistant coach of the first team under Dave Woods, has been head of the club's youth development department since 2008, a period in the club's history in which a host of young players have emerged into Super League stars to the point that over half of the Tigers' current first team squad are home-grown talents developed from within the club.

On his appointment, Gill said:"Jack Fulton asked me if I would stand in as CEO for an interim period which could be 2-6 weeks depending on finding the right person. I have full support from Ian Millward (head coach), Richard Turner (general manager) and Nick Fozzard (commercial manager). I have also spoken to Steve Ferres and he has offered his support if required. There's a lot to do and I know I will be busy in the weeks to come.

"I've been a Cas fan all of my life from doing the scoreboard and ball boy duties as a youngster to being assistant first team coach to now head of youth. Though I have no designs on the CEO role permanently, it is a privilege and I will give it my best shot so that when a new CEO comes in there's not too much of a gap."

Chairman Jack Fulton believes Gill is the right man for this interim period: "I would like to thank Steve for stepping forward to the breach at short notice, albeit on a temporary basis. His dedication and devotion to the club is without question and I ask that the fans unite behind Steve and the club during this time."

This one looks like he's promised to do what he's told.

Does being a ball boy and a scoreboard operator qualify him to be CEO?

I'm a great believer in management knowing how to do as many tasks as possible. It helps them understand the problems in fulfilling those tasks.

To be honest, how many people can put their hands up for a 6 week (or so) CEO role?

It'll never be permanent so not too fussed about this appointment, Foz as commercial manager however.......
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.
