Huddersfield Giants have this morning confirmed that first team coach Chris Thorman has left the club, ending his six-year spell on the club’s staff.
Prior to taking a coaching role at the club, the former England international made a century of appearances for the West Yorkshire club and started his coaching career with York. Earlier in 2018, 38-year-old Thorman took the helm at Huddersfield after Rick Stone was sacked. During his spell as caretaker prior to Simon Woolford joining the club, the North East native took charge of ten matches.
In a short statement released on the club’s official website, managing director Richard Thewlis remarked of how well thought of Thorman is at the Giants. “Chris will be remembered fondly by the Giants supporters for his time both playing and coaching at the Club,” he outlined. “He is without doubt someone with the best interest of the Club at heart and I know this decision to move on was a very difficult one for him to take. We all here wish him well in the future.”
