Castleford Tigers wish to update supporters on the search for a new Head Coach.

 

Chief Executive, Steve Gill said: "We're progressing with our search for a new Head Coach. We have had a total of 10 applicants to date and we are busy assessing and meeting with them.

 

"We thought long and hard about Stuart Raper's offer to work with Danny Orr until the end of the season, however we have decided not to go down that route. I think that the financial outlay that would have been required to bring Stuart over could be used more wisely on a long-term appointment.

 

"We are still actively looking for a permanent Head Coach and will make a further announcement in due course."

 

ENDS

Read somewhere Darryl Powell to Cas with Andy Hay to Fev.

That would certainly go down well Post Office Road way....

What will be, wil be

There was a Featherstone Rovers before DP and there'll be one afterwards.

That said, can't see what the appeal would be. He's reputedly on similar money to SL coaches, he's shaping a club on the up and could well be in SL shortly with Fev. Contast that with Cas, who have no money, a club on a downward path and could be in the Championship shortly.

I vaguely know Andy Hay, he's an Airedale lad and despises all things flat cap, would be an odd choice.

 Exactly. I thought Chris Chester was the name always lined up to replace DP anyway. :lol:
