FERGUSON LEAVES GIANTS
We can announce that Dale Ferguson has left Huddersfield Giants
Huddersfield Giants Second Row forward Dale Ferguson has left the club ahead of the end of season run in the Betfred Super League.
The 31 year old has played 32 games for the club since returning at the start of the 2017 season but has however made only one appearance this year in the defeat to Wakefield in June.
Giants Managing Director Richard Thewlis paid tribute to the 31 year old whom he also worked with in the Scotland International set up “Dale has been an outstanding player and person at our club and for his country.
"I have personally spent many hours watching him play for the Giants and his country and in particular in his time with Scotland he was a real leader for us. The sad reality though is that his game time and availability has not been where either party would wish and its with sadness we have come to this announcement today.
"Dale did get a knock on his comeback game and needs to rest up for a period while that’s assessed and worked through which rule him out for the remainder of this year. He had a year left to run with us but, as I say, we’ve come to an amicable arrangement which for Dale allows a fresh start and for us frees up a slot for one of our younger players to strive for in next years 25 man Super League squad.”
