Lee Radford’s ambitious plans for his first season in charge of Castleford

Lee Radford famously guided Hull FC to two Challenge Cup victories in back-to-back seasons in 2016 and 2017 and the Castleford faithful will be hoping he can do something similar to that in his time at the Jungle.

Radford has the task of embedding in eight new signings, with an ambition of reaching the top six in his first season as well as challenging for silverware along the way.

The ex-Bradford and Hull forward is under no illusions just how difficult winning a trophy is, but highlighted the minimal amount of wins needed to make a major final.

“We’ve got to make the six, we haven’t made it in the last two years, Radford told BBC Radio Leeds.

“And then you’re fit and healthy at the end of the season and then you are a couple of games away from the Grand Final.”

Not only did Radford speak about getting to the Grand Final, but he also has his eye on that Challenge Cup trophy that he won twice at the Black and Whites.

“The cup is now less games than it probably has ever been to reach a final.

“You can find yourself at Wembley in two or three games and anything can happen at Wembley, we’re ambitious.”
