Rovers chairman to step down

Hull KR chairman Neil Hudgell will step down from his role of chairman at the end of the year.

Hudgell has been in the position since 2004, and has oversaw both of the club’s promotions to the Super League, in 2006 and 2017.

He will officially leave his post 1st December.

He told the club website: “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.

“It has been an honour to lead Hull Kingston Rovers for such a long time and I have so many people to thank and praise for their help and support throughout the journey.

“But it’s time for me to sit it out for a while and more importantly, time for someone else to come in and elevate our great club to where I have not quite managed to take it.”
