Huddersfield name new academy coach

Huddersfield Giants have appointed Kim Williams as the clubs’ new academy coach on a three year contract.

The Australian has been in charge of West Wales Raiders in League One, and led them to their first win since their relocation in 2018.

Williams built up a reputation at the Raiders for his work with young players.

He told the Giants’ club website:  “Joining the Huddersfield Giants was an opportunity that I just couldn’t turn down. I’m excited and privileged to be joining a club with so much history, especially in the Rugby League heartlands.

“I know the Giants are a club with strong foundations and have one of the most exiting academies in the British game.

“Having a strong background in player development, I feel my skills will perfectly fit the role and I can’t wait to get started”

Giants Head of Youth Andy Kelly added: “Whilst one door closed when Scott Grix left us another opened and the opportunity for both Kim and ourselves is, I believe, a perfect fit.

“The role is crucial to the development of the young players both at academy and indeed scholarship and I am certain that in Kim they will have a coach and mentor of the highest quality.

“He will bring a freshness and challenge us all in our methods and thinking so that we can continue to improve and evolve.”
