Former Leeds Rhinos and Castleford Tigers halfback finds new club for 2023

Cory Aston has flirted with both Super League and the Championship in his career.

At one stage he was brought to Headingley by the Leeds Rhinos as one of the halves earmarked to replace the likes of Danny McGuire and Rob Burrow alongside Jordan Lilley.

He made his Rhinos debut on Boxing Day in 2016 but wasn’t able to truly force his way in at Leeds instead spending most of time at Headingley on loan at Featherstone Rovers and Bradford Bulls.

His next shot came at Castleford Tigers under Daryl Powell however once again was unable to force his way into the side with the likes of Jake Trueman ahead of him.

During this time he returned to his first club Sheffield Eagles on loan as well as a stint at Newcastle Thunder on loan in 2019.

Since then he’s been starring quite brilliantly in the Championship most recently for Halifax Panthers who confirmed last week that he was on the move.

His future has now been confirmed with the halfback reuniting with his father and Sheffield Eagles legend Mark Aston at the club.

Mark was the mastermind behind Sheffield’s famous 1998 Challenge Cup Final win over Wigan Warriors and is now Director of Rugby at the club and has signed Corey up to a three year deal.
