Warriors to Release Tickle

The Wigan Warriors today confirmed that a new contract would not be offered to Second Row Forward Danny Tickle.

Commenting on the announcement, Chairman Maurice Lindsay said,

"We have put together a four year plan and for the past few weeks we have been extending contracts of most of our young players in an effort to bring stability and permanency to the side. We are trying to plan right through to 2010."

Lindsay continued,

"We will be announcing that structure over the next few weeks but sadly we are unable to include Danny Tickle as we work to remain within the salary cap. The salary cap figure for 2007 is only £1.6 million and so we will be forced to release some players. We have several players on loan to other clubs and until their future plans are finalised we cannot determine our final squad. We also await the outcome of the Grand Final Play-Offs to Super League."

Head Coach Brian Noble said,

"We are naturally sorry to lose Danny. Not only has he been a good player for us but he is also one of the best goal kickers in the country. He is a victim of the need to remain within the salary cap but we wish him well and thank him for his contribution here."
