Jamie Langley to leave London

London Broncos assistant coach Jamie Langley will leave the club at the end of the month.

The 37-year-old has spent five seasons with the capital club after moving to London at the end of 2015 to work under then head coach Andrew Henderson.

Former Coventry Bears boss Tom Tsang will step up to be Danny Ward’s assistant for the rest of the season as well as remaining in his academy head coaching role.

Langley said: “After much consideration, the time has come to bid farewell to my Broncos family. My time at the club has been some of the most rewarding and enjoyable of my life. It has not only shaped me as a coach, but also as a person.

“I’ll be forever thankful to the club for the opportunity, and I leave with many good memories, none more so than our promotion to the Super League. Watching players I coached as teenagers develop into brilliant players and outstanding young men is what I will hold dearest.

“I am indebted for the mentorship and guidance of my colleagues past and present and would like to thank David Hughes for his unwavering support of the club and its people too.

“Lastly, to the fans. We’ve missed you greatly during the pandemic and I’ll be pleased to sign-off my time with the Broncos in front of our loyal supporters. We’ll be doing everything possible to make it a day to celebrate.”

Broncos coach Danny Ward said: “Jamie has been a fantastic assistant and his knowledge, guidance, influence and positivity has been a big part of our journey.

“It has been a pleasure to work together and we wish him all the best. Tom Tsang will be stepping up to be assistant coach for the rest of the season along with his academy head coach role. It is a great opportunity for Tom and will help us continue to develop young players.”
