Former Hull FC halfback bids farewell to club and hints at the future

Albert Kelly is beloved by Hull FC fans after helping them to the Challenge Cup trophy in 2017.

That was the perfect redemption for Kelly after being a part of the Hull KR side who famously lost 50-0 to Leeds Rhinos in 2015.

It seemed like he and Marc Sneyd would be the pair to turn Hull into Grand Finalists but they came up short again in 2017 after a third place finish losing to Leeds at Headingley in the semi-finals 18-16.

Sadly, Hull struggled to kick on from there and in 2020 Kelly lost the number six shirt to Jake Connor prior to leaving the club as Josh Reynolds arrived.

Kelly ended up at Brisbane Broncos feeder team and it was expected that Kelly wouldn’t get much of a look in at Brisbane.

However, injuries and form saw him battle into the first team and become a key player sometimes partnering Adam Reynolds.

However, he is again on the move in 2023 but his career isn’t over.

The halfback hasn’t yet ruled out a return to Super League and as he bid farewell to the Broncos he noted his excitement at the future.

He took to Instagram to say: “Firstly a huge thank you to the Brisbane broncos for giving me the opportunity to come home and play some footy.

”Thank you to all the coaching staff and everyone in the backgrounds that helped me along the way!

”I would also like to thank everyone at Magpies for having me as well.

”Looking forward to what’s next!”
