Championship coach leaves club in SHOCK development

Danny Ward has left London by mutual consent.

Ward and the Broncos have parted company after the capital club were thrashed 63-14 by Featherstone Rovers last weekend, with the former Leeds Rhinos prop leaving now rather than at the end of the season.

The popular figure has been at London since 2018, guiding the Broncos to promotion in that year after defeating Toronto in the Championship Grand Final.

London are currently sixth in the second-tier, with Tom Tsang taking  interim charge of the team as acting head coach until further notice.

Danny had recently approached the club to say he would not be renewing his contract at the end of the season, as he was exploring other opportunities.

David Hughes, London Broncos’ owner, said: “On behalf of everyone at the club we would like to thank Danny for his vast contribution to the club across the many years he has represented the London Broncos as both player and coach.

“Danny has given us so many great memories and developed so many players. The highlight of course was our promotion to the Super League at the end of the 2018 season.

“Following a lot of reflection, we agreed now is the best time for both the club and Danny to take a new approach.

“We wish Danny all the best and are all positive about the future at the Broncos.”

Danny Ward said: “After spending 14 years in London, with the last 4 years coaching I have decided it is the right time to pass on the baton at this great club to someone else.

“I have some amazing memories here and will never forget that special day in Toronto being promoted to Super League and also coaching the junior sides since 2013 and seeing our exceptional young talent progress from scholarship to first team as a major highlight during my time at the club.

“I would like to thank David and Jason for the opportunity that they have given me and wish them all the best going forward.

“Lastly to the players, coaching staff and fans you have been amazing over the last 14 years and I look forward to watching from a distance the club going onto achieving great things.”

The club will not be commenting further on this matter at this time.
