Halifax have confirmed the departure of centre Steve Tyrer after nine years at the club.
Tyrer signed for Halifax from Widnes Vikings back in 2012, and has since made over 200 appearances and scored 2,000 points. He leaves as the club’s second all-time leading points scorer behind Ronnie James.
He told the club website: “It’s been unbelievable. I’m not a massive crier but I had tears in my eyes this morning when I told all the lads. I reckon if I was stood in front of the stands now and it was the last game of the season and I was doing it though, I’d be an absolute wreck.
“The fans have been brilliant with me. Everybody knows what it means to me to play for this club and it’s nine years that I’ll never ever forget.”
