Dewsbury Rams part ways with head coach Lee Greenwood

Championship Dewsbury Rams

Dewsbury Rams have parted ways with head coach Lee Greenwood. 

Greenwood took over the position of head coach at the end of the 2018 season and took charge of sixty-four league and cup games, winning twenty three.

It comes following their 66-0 defeat away to Halifax Panthers on Tuesday in the Championship.

The Rams have only won two games out of 13 in 2022, including a one-point victory over winless Workington. They also secured a 12-10 home victory over Sheffield.

Dewsbury Rams chairman thanks Greenwood

Club chairman Mark Sawyer said: “I would like to pay tribute to all the hard work that Lee has put in at Dewsbury Rams over the last couple of seasons.

“He had to endure the enforced break in 2020 through Covid when the team had made such a positive start to the season and guided us to a 10th place finish in 2021 in a season that again had issues with Covid related postponements.

“This season he has had to cope with a massive injury list and player unavailability and has done the best job possible with such limited resources. He has been so professional in his time with us and his work with the media and interaction with supporters and sponsors and we wish him well in his future career. He leaves with my upmost respect and thanks.”

Player/assistant coach Paul Sykes will take over as interim head coach with immediate effect.

Sawyer added “I would like to thank Paul Sykes for agreeing to step up into the head coach role at such short notice.

“I realise that this opportunity has come a little earlier than expected for Paul in his transition from total playing to player/coach, but as our supporters know, Paul is a great ambassador for our club. We know will give total commitment to the role as long as needed.”

Dewsbury face Whitehaven at home on Sunday.
