Halifax confirm squad re-signings

Halifax have announced the re-signings of Shaun Robinson, Conor McGrath and Brandon Moore for the 2021 Championship season.

Robinson, 31, has scored 16 tries in 34 appearances so far during his Halifax career.

He said: “Me and my family are looking forward to seeing everyone down at The Shay soon. I think we all need to jump on board and get behind Simon as I believe the culture he is bringing to the club will only bring success. A few huge personalities and good friends have left the club and which will be irreplaceable, but I still believe we will be better next season. I can’t wait to pull the blue and white on again and see all the fans next season.”

McGrath, 25, progressed through the club’s reserve grade system, and scored a hat-trick on his debut against Sheffield in 2017.

He said: “I’m buzzing to have signed for Fax again. I’m on board with what Simon is building here and looking forward to playing at The Shay again after a long break. Halifax have been good to me ever since I joined the reserves so it was an easy decision to stay for another year. Pre-season will no doubt be the hardest yet after all this time off but we will be firing come February and ready to go.”

Moore, 24, was nominated for Championship Young Player of the Season in both 2018 and 2019.

He said: “I am really happy to have signed another year at Halifax, making it my 6th season at the club. It has been unfortunate that we have not been able to play due to the current circumstances happening at the moment. I have really missed training and playing on the weekends and I am looking forward to getting back in and getting started. A lot of lads are moving on who have been a big part of the team and the club and they will be a big miss both on and off the field. I wish them all the best. I have full faith in Simon building a strong squad for the new season and looking forward to getting back out there in the near future, with old and new faces.”
