Hull FC confirm immediate first-team departure

Hull FC

Hull FC have confirmed that Ben Reynolds’ loan spell with the club has ended.

The player has taken an option to join another, unnamed club on a permanent 18-month contract, FC have confirmed.

The half-back joined the Black and Whites in May from city-rivals Hull KR, starting all five games the side have played since then, being the side’s main kicker and picking up a try against Salford Red Devils at the weekend.

Previous to his time at KR, where he only made two appearances, he made over 100 over two spells with Leigh Leopards, which included starting in the club’s triumph in the Challenge Cup final last year – over Hull KR.

The loan move with Hull KR was supposed to be until the end of the season, and when he made the cross-city switch, FC Director of Rugby Richie Myler said: “We’re pleased to add someone of Ben’s quality and experience of the game to our ranks for the remainder of the season.

“Half-back is a position we’ve been keen to add some depth to in recent weeks, and Ben’s attributes, with his kicking game in particular, will compliment those of Jake (Trueman), Morgan (Smith) and Jack (Charles) over the coming months.

“I’m excited to see what he can add to our group, starting this weekend against London.”

Hailing from Sheffield, he’s English, so he won’t count towards a new club’s quota at all.

The announcement for his next club is expected to be imminent.

After starting his career at Castleford Tigers, and spending time with Featherstone Rovers and Wakefield Trinity – added on to the two clubs’ recent record of transferring players – this could well be Craig Lingard’s side.
