RFL pays tribute to Castleford chairman Jack Fulton

The Rugby Football League have paid tribute to “Mr Castleford”, Tigers chairman Jack Fulton, who passed away yesterday (Tuesday) at the age of 83.

Chief Executive of the RFL, Nigel Wood, said “Quite simply Jack Fulton was Mr Castleford. It is undoubtedly true to say that without Jack’s support and encouragement Castleford Tigers wouldn’t be the club it is today.

When the history of the club finally comes to be written, the name of Jack Fulton will feature heavily throughout its pages.

“I am so pleased that Jack was able to enjoy watching his beloved Castleford at Wembley last year in the Challenge Cup Final.

“Cas have lost a great supporter and Rugby League has lost a fine and honourable man.

“Our heartfelt sympathies are extended to his widow Bridie and all Jack’s family.”
