Andrew Henderson reveals his stance on taking over at Castleford Tigers

It won’t have escaped your notice that there is currently an opening at Castleford Tigers after the club parted company with Head Coach Lee Radford last week.

Naturally a lot of names have been thrown about especially those with prior links to the club so naturally one of those talked about is York RLFC boss Andrew Henderson.

However, when asked about taking on the job, Henderson said on BBC Sport: “Nah, no, not at all. I made sure to reassure the owner the other day actually because I know a lot of speculation can come out of paper talk.

“People can start saying what they like with rumours and that, so I made it very clear to Clint to not read into that.

“I know I’m being linked with the job but I’ve got no interest in it.

“I did interview for the Castleford job initially, when Lee Radford was appointed. I was down to the final two and obviously the club went in that direction.

“Had the time been then it may have been different but since then I’ve joined York and I’ve really bought into the project we’re building.

“I really believe that we can build something here at York and create a Super League team and club here.

“I’m aligned with the vision and ambition that the owner has and I’m excited about what we’re doing here, I really am and I genuinely believe in what we’re doing here.

“This club has so much potential to do something special in the future and bring Super League rugby to York.

“I just hope that in my time and tenure that I can help the club realise that, and help the players to showcase their talent at the next level.

“Ultimately I do have ambition to coach in Super League and hopefully that will be with York.”
