Hull FC star Albert Kelly to return to Australia at end of season

Albert Kelly will leave Hull FC at the end of the season so he can head home to Australia with his family.

The 29-year-old joined the Black and Whites from rivals Hull KR in 2017, scoring 40 tries in 68 appearances for the club.

Kelly will play out the 2020 campaign with Hull before returning to Australia to spend time with his family and embark on new opportunities.

He said: “Firstly, I would like to thank all the members and supporters for their support and to all the staff across the board.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity this great club has given me and the special memories it has given me and my family. I’ve been here in the UK nearly six years and now that the kids are getting older I think it’s the right time to head home.

“Hull in general will always have a special place in our hearts as my son Boston was born here! Hopefully down the track I can bring him back and watch a game or two.”

“With all that said, I’m super keen to get back to business and finish on a high with the fellas.”
