Huddersfield Giants and Halifax strike up dual registration partnership

Huddersfield Giants and Halifax Panthers have again agreed a dual registration partnership for the 2022 season.

Huddersfield Giants Managing Director, Richard Thewlis said: “There is a natural geographical fit with Halifax and the partnership in the past has worked well for both club’s benefit.

“From the Giants perspective we have the added resource that the reserve side will require to service and fulfil which will be a natural fit for both our and Halifax’s fringe players over academy age and of course if we are able, and players are needed, we would like nothing better than to strengthen the Halifax first team if they require help.

“They have a very strong side already with clear top four ambitions which again will offer our players opportunities from time to time. The model at Huddersfield now gives players opportunities at a multitude of levels all of which we’d hope will enhance their development and ultimately enable them to be the best possible player that they can.”

Ian Croad, Halifax Panthers Football Director said: “We have a very good working relationship with The Huddersfield Giants. I am sure the continued partnership will be of benefit to both clubs. We have made some excellent signings this season but we all know how injury can change the dynamics.

“Having the ability to call on reinforcements could be the extra that we need. It’s a very competitive league in the Championship and every little improvement makes a big difference.”
