Halifax Panthers have announced the signing of Cory Aston, who joins the club on a two-year deal.
The 26 year old becomes the fifth new recruit for the Panthers joining Joe Keyes, Lachlan Walmsley, Brad Knowles and Titus Gwaze in making the move to the Shay.
Aston has Super League credentials with Castleford Tigers and a wealth of Championship experience with Sheffield Eagles, Bradford Bulls, Featherstone Rovers and most recently London Broncos.
A creative half-back, Aston brings organisation and an all round kicking game including goal kicking which will have him no doubt competing with new signings Keyes and Walmsley in 2022 and beyond.
“I’m delighted to be a Panther for at least the next 2 years” said Aston. “Halifax is a big club with a big fan base and I can’t wait to pull on the blue and white jersey.”
“I’m really looking forward to what should be an exciting 2022. Simon has brought in some great additions to what was already a very strong squad and I can’t wait to get started next week.”
Head coach Simon Grix spoke about his latest addition to the squad: “Corey has a lot of experience in the Championship which will really help us.”
“He is a game management type of player, with a good feel for the flow of a game. He appeals to us as he has shown ambition in his career and certainly has the hunger to continue to improve.”
