Paul Anderson appointed Giants Head Coach

Foster Care

Huddersfield Giants have today agreed to an early release of contract with Nathan Brown and appointed Paul Anderson to the position of Head Coach with immediate effect.

Giants Managing Director Richard Thewlis told that the decision was borne out of the last two months decline in form “Clearly all can see that we have not performed to a level that we are confident this squad is capable of and as a consequence we have today agreed that Nathan will leave the club and Paul will move forward as Head Coach. This was the intention we announced at the end of last season however events have led to the need to bring this change forward. It is a sad day when the coach leaves any club and I pay tribute to the enormous contribution that Nathan has made to the Giants in his three and a half years with us. We remain in a play off position in Super league and believe that the move today is in the best interest of all concerned and gives us the best opportunity to cement as high as position as possible in the run to the end of the season.”

Nathan Brown commented: “I leave sorry that my time has ended earlier than probably anyone would have wished but I understand the clubs decision. I have had a great time at the club and will cherish some superb memories and have made some lifelong friends amongst the players, coaches, staff and supporters. In particular my support staff led by Paul Anderson have been wonderful and I wish them every success going forward especially Paul who I hope will get the group to a strong finish to the season.”
