Hull FC to continue dual reg partnership with Doncaster

Hull FC have confirmed that they will once again partner with Doncaster for dual registration of players in 2015.

The agreement will continue for another year, after both clubs felt that they benefited from the arrangment in 2014.

“It is a partnership that certainly paid dividends for us last season, so I am extremely pleased we will have that option once again in 2015,” said Hull FC coach Lee Radford.

“It is important to us especially with the depth that we have in our squad next season, that those who are not featuring in the first team at times do not stutter in their development and continue to progress.

Chris Green returned to us late last season away at Salford firing on all cylinders following a period with Doncaster in which he was able to return to full fitness and match sharpness, and I think that is a prime example of how beneficial partnership can be.

“The synergy between the clubs extends further than the on the field activities and as we move forward into the new Super League era, a connection with such a promising side will be a great bonus to my coaching and playing staff.

“I look forward to having the opportunity once more to work closely alongside Paul Cooke and the personnel in place at Doncaster RL next season.”

Doncaster player/coach Paul Cooke is also pleased that the partnership has been renewed.

“We are delighted to have extended our dual registration with Hull FC for another season and the club are once again looking forward to welcoming players to Doncaster in 2015,” he said.

“Last season the partnership was a great success for both sides, with those at Hull FC needing game time coming to Doncaster and really proving a point.

“The system definitely played a big part in helping us to a top four finish in 2014, there were times during the campaign where our squad was really stretched due to injuries and we relied heavily on dual registration players.

“We hope the partnership success continues and the results are as positive as they were last season both on and off the field.

“I’d like to thank Lee Radford and Hull FC for making this possible and I look forward to working with him and his staff again.”
