West Wales coach Kim Williams departs for Huddersfield

West Wales coach Kim Williams has left the club to take up an opportunity in Super League with Huddersfield.

The 44-year-old has joined the Giants in the role of academy coach on a three-year contract.

Williams linked up with League 1 side West Wales ahead of the 2019 season on a three-year deal, guiding the Raiders to their first ever win in the professional ranks.

He said: “Joining the Huddersfield Giants was an opportunity that I just couldn’t turn down.

“I’m excited and privileged to be joining a club with so much history, especially in the rugby league heartlands.

“I know the Giants are a club with strong foundations and have one of the most exiting academy’s in the British game. Having a strong background in player development, I feel my skills will perfectly fit the role and I can’t wait to get started.

“I have enjoyed my time with the West Wales Raiders over the past 12 months and it has been a very tough decision to leave the club but this is an opportunity that I could not pass up.”
