Lynch granted testimonial

Castleford prop Andy Lynch has been awarded a testimonial year throughout 2014.

Lynch, 34, has played more than 400 matches across a 15-year period for Castleford (1999-2004 and 2014), Bradford (2005-2011), Hull (2012-13), England and Great Britain.

He said: “I am delighted to have been recognised by the clubs I have represented and the RFL and be honoured with a testimonial year.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my career so far which has given me so much joy and success. It’s been a dream come true to play for my boyhood team in Castleford Tigers, represent my country on several occasions on the World stage and also play for two other of rugby league’s most historic teams.”

A number of special events will take place throughout the year for all rugby league supporters to get involved with.

Lynch is also coach of his childhood amateur side Kippax Welfare and ambassador of Life For A Kid, a charity supporting children who require life changing operations and equipment to lead a better life.

Tigers Chief Executive, Steve Gill said: “We are really pleased for Andy that he has been granted a testimonial. He has been a great servant to all of rugby league and so it is a thoroughly deserved and we wish him all the best for the year ahead, not just on the field but off it too.”
