“Simply not good enough” – Huddersfield Giants owner Ken Davy’s message to the fans

Huddersfield Giants Ken Davy Ian Watson

Huddersfield Giants were subject to a humiliating 48-0 loss at the hands of Warrington Wolves last night and now the club’s owner Ken Davy has spoken out to address fans.

Ken Davy has pumped millions of pounds into Huddersfield Giants during his time as owner with a particular emphasis on his investment of late under the tenure of Ian Watson as head coach. Speaking ahead of the 2023 Super League season, Davy explained that he had invested more money than ever before to create a top-level squad.

That investment followed the Giants’ impressive 2022 season where they made the Challenge Cup Final and finished third in Super League. The most significant player to be recruited was Jake Connor who was brought back to Huddersfield Giants, however, just 18 months into his new deal with the club there are question marks over whether he actually wants to play.

Connor played last night in the humiliating defeat to Warrington, something that left Ian Watson having an emotional post-match rant, and it’s also seen owner Ken Davy send a message to the fans with the 83-year-old penning a letter that was published late last night on the Huddersfield Giants’ website.

Davy’s letter read: “I want to apologise to all the fans and supporters of the Huddersfield Giants everywhere for tonight’s loss to Warrington. Everyone at the club knows that results like this are simply not good enough.

“Like all clubs at this stage of the season we obviously have some injuries, however I am confident that we have the quality of player and depth of squad to do battle with any of our rivals in Super League and come out on top

“The fact is we know we can do better than tonight’s disappointing result and with about half the season remaining, we need to use this defeat as a spur to demonstrate to our fans that we can deliver the victories on the pitch that the club and all our supporters deserve.

“I thank you all most sincerely for your continued support and look forward to enjoying happier times in the second half of the season.

“All good wishes – Ken Davy”

It doesn’t seem like a vote of confidence in Ian Watson who will be massively under pressure currently after the club suffered their eighth loss in nine games in all competitions. Huddersfield Giants currently sit six points outside the playoff spots, yet they’re only three points clear of tenth-placed Castleford Tigers, who beat St Helens last night.
