Woolford leaves Giants
Huddersfield Giants head coach Simon Woolford has today left the club ahead of the planned season end contract date.
Giants managing director, Richard Thewlis, said: “Simon and I caught up today regarding the position and we both agreed this is best for both parties.
“I would like to pay tribute to Simon for his professionalism and realisation of the situation once it was known he wasn’t seeking an extension and everyone here wishes him and his family every success in the future.
"He returns to Australia after just over two years experience here as Head Coach and am sure will have many suitors down under for his services.”
Luke Robinson will assume immediate charge of all first team matters and be assisted by Kim Williams with Andy Kelly as football manager.
