Warrington assistants to make way for Powell and new team

Warrington assistant coaches Lee Briers and Andrew Henderson will be leaving the Halliwell Jones at the end of 2021.

Briers has been at the club for a quarter of a century whilst Henderson has played a key role in the past few seasons.

Lee Briers said: “I’m extremely thankful to the Club for the last 25 years. I’ve achieved some incredible things and have loved every minute of my time here. I’ve experienced everything – the highs, the lows and the in-betweens.

“I want to thank all the fans for taking me in back in 1997 as a young boy who’s now leaving as a man. We as a family have all taken to Warrington and my kids have both grown up to be big Warrington fans.

“There are thousands of people I could thank who had a big impact on my career both in playing and in coaching. I thank Darryl van de Velde first and foremost for bringing me to the Club along with Peter Higham. Paul Cullen too for giving me the opportunity to captain this great club.

“Tony Smith came in and was sensational in the development of me – he bettered me as a person which I’m very thankful for.

“Pricey [Steve Price] as well for giving me my first assistant coach role. Ourselves and our families have become really close over the past few years.

“The Supporters’ Trust too have been a massive part of my life ever since I had a Testimonial and I’m grateful for everything they do.

“I also can’t thank Simon Moran enough for everything he’s done for me over the years.

“It is an emotional and scary time to be leaving after 25 years but on reflection this is the right time to go and experience something else which is quite exciting and scary at the same time. I wish Daryl Powell and the Club all the best for 2022 onwards.”
