CASTLEFORD Tigers chief executive Richard Wright has resigned after 15 years in the role.

Wright will remain a director of the club and insists his resignation is not linked to recent rumours of a takeover.

He also assured supporters his resignation will not have an impact on the new stadium project in which he has played a major role.

He said: "I have made this decision to move on with a great deal of thought.

"Fifteen years in the role has taken its toll on me.

"The job consumes you totally for seven days a week and it's time to give priority to my family.

"It has been a real privilege for me to work at this great club and, whilst I leave my role with sadness, I believe there are good times ahead.

"The move has got nothing to do with recent rumours regarding consortiums looking to take over the club.

"Whilst it is true there was an approach, when the time came to get the cheque-book out nothing materialised."
