Sneyd confident of progress at Hull FC

Marc Sneyd is optimistic that his move to Hull FC will be good for both him and the club.

The 23-year-old halfback spent last season at Castleford Tigers on loan from Salford Red Devils, and emerged as one of Super League‘s top pivots.

He is looking forward to linking up with fellow new signing Leon Pryce in Hull’s halves next season.

“I have been lucky enough to have had a taste of what it is like to get to Wembley and compete in play off football. I want to go better and keep progressing and for me Hull is the place to do that starting next season,” he told his club’s official website.

“Leon has won pretty much everything that you can win with a team in Super League, so he is obviously really experienced. I am looking to learn a lot off him which hopefully will progress my game by just simply being on the same pitch as him.

“Since mine and Leon’s announcement, the club has also signed Mark Minichiello, Steve Michaels and who are all really big signings and Curtis Naughton sounds like an exciting young player too with lots to offer.

“It will be good to work with all the lads, particularly players like Gareth Ellis, Danny Houghton and Kirk Yeaman who have been there a while now and achieved a lot.  They will bring a lot of experience as well which is massive at Super League level.”

Sneyd was second only to Danny Brough in the number of try assists he made in 2014, and also topped the goal-kicking charts.

He is keen to make further progress in 2015 on the west side of Hull.

“I am pleased with how I have gone this year, but I’m the type of player who looks at the stats and is never satisfied with how I have done,” he added.

“I feel that I can still get better and that you should always try to better yourself throughout your career. If I can do that next year then I should be in for a half decent season.

“Mixing it in with names like Danny Brough this season in the stats tables obviously feels pretty good and gives me great confidence, but I owe a lot of credit to the guys I played with and I have thanked them personally for helping me to achieve that.”
