Greenwood hangs up his boots

Rochdale Hornets ace Miles Greenwood has announced his retirement from Rugby League.

The Championship club have confirmed that the full-back will remain at the club though, continuing his role as head of strength and conditioning.

Greenwood has enjoyed a fine career, starting out at St Helens before stints with Halifax, Oldham Roughyeds and Batley Bulldogs, scoring 94 tries in just over 150 games.

The 30-year-old joined the Hornets ahead of the 2017 campaign in his dual-role and helped the club avoid relegation, scoring five tries in 18 appearances.

And Rochdale head coach Alan Kilshaw paid tribute to Greenwood.

He said: “Miles has a really good future in the game as a conditioner.

“What he’s done here last year and in pre-season is evidence of that.

“Playing wise he’s had a good career at some good clubs, and he’s had an impact on and off the field if you speak to any of those.

“He started at St Helens and then had spells with successful Championship clubs and he can look back with a lot of pride at what he achieved as a player.

“He’s got a lot to look forward to as well and he’s been great for us.”
