Castleford chairman stays positive

Castleford chairman Jack Fulton says the club is still working towards a position of sustainability, despite the resignation of chief executive Steve Ferres.

Ferres, formerly chief at York and Wakefield, left his post early on Tuesday, after growing frustrated at the lack of support from the board over his plans to shake-up the club.

He had previously revealed how the club was in a “precarious position” and needed more support from fans, with nearly 4000 signing up to a new membership scheme initiated by Ferres, who replaced Richard Wright last July.

Fulton said: “I would like to thank Steve for his efforts during his time at the club and wish him well for the future.

“For over 20 years I have supported this club financially to a substantial amount with the aim of keeping it going as a Super League club ready for the day when it can support itself. 

“While disappointed by Steve’s resignation, this position remains unchanged. We look to the future and a real opportunity now exists for somebody new to come into the chief executive’s role and drive the club forward.”
