Hull KR youngster Tom Whur has joined League 1 club Rochdale on a season-long loan for 2022.

The 20-year-old forward linked up with the Hornets in 2021 on loan alongside Rovers team-mate Will Tate.

Whur said: “I’m excited to re-sign at Rochdale. I had a two-week loan last season and really enjoyed my time here and being around the lads. 

“I was shy on game time last season, so I’m looking forward to hopefully getting some regular minutes for Matt Calland and in turn help the club achieve their goal of promotion.  

“This experience is what I need to advance in the sport and I’m really excited to get stuck in.”

North Wales Crusaders have signed a new deal that will see them remain in Colwyn Bay until at least the end of 2023.

The League 1 side have signed a new two-year deal with Conwy County Borough Council to remain at the Eirias Stadium. 

The facility hosted Crusaders’ home fixtures in 2021 on the back of the club’s move from Queensway Stadium in Wrexham.

Crusaders chief executive Andy Moulsdale said: “We can’t thank the Council and people in the local area enough for their support since our move to Eirias Stadium.

“This was a big move for us. We’ve always been based in the Wrexham area previously. But the response has been fantastic. It’s provided us with so many more opportunities to develop the club.”
