Hull KR’s future ownership confirmed

Neil Hudgell will be staying on as owner of Hull KR, meaning the club will no longer be up for sale.

The news was confirmed as the Robins took on Wigan at home earlier tonight, ending an uncertain period of time for all those concerned.

Neil Hudgell announced he would stand down as chairman in December 2020 with a view to relinquishing eventual control of the club after 16 years in charge of the club.

Hudgell had initially stated: “Lockdown has given me a chance to reflect on the sport, the club and my personal situation.”

“Hull Kingston Rovers has been an all-consuming journey for me for the last 16 years and I have decided that now is the right time for change.

“Coming back to play brings with it a return of the same old stresses and anxieties. The weight of expectation for a club of our size and support base is enormous and needs more than I feel I am now able to give.”

Now, though, it appears the solicitor has had a dramatic change of heart.
