One club man Cudjoe granted testimonial

Huddersfield captain Leroy Cudjoe has been awarded a 12-month testimonial by the RFL.

Cudjoe, 29, has spent his entire career with the Giants and is approaching his 300th appearance.

He said: Yes its a great honour and one that I’ve had an eye on for some time now. Everyone knows how much I love the club and the town and its never entered my head to leave when we have such a great set up and team around me so I am very happy that next year is my testimonial. 

“I have the support of my family and other friends to help me organise things and whilst I know it’ll be incredibly busy it will also be exciting too as I will see a new side to the club and get involved in different things. 

“The focus will never leave the field of course and no one will try harder than me to make it a successful one on the pitch and I hope I’ll get the support of the fans to make the year a memorable one off it too.”

The testimonial will run from January 1 2018.

Head Coach Rick Stone told the club’s official website: “I think it’s well and truly justified. He’s a role model for our place, on and off the field, a great representation of the Huddersfield community, he leads by example on and off the pitch as well. 

“He’s got a massive influence and passion for the Rugby League grassroots in the local area, with his own coaching that he does in Moldgreen. 

“He is 24/7 Claret and Gold and deserves everything he gets.”
