Warrington react to Lee Briers’ departure as move to new role looms

Warrington Wolves have reacted to the departure of legend Lee Briers.

After 25 years at the club as both a player and coach, Briers has now signed off from the Halliwell Jones – though his next destination remains up in the air after rejecting claims of a move to Leigh earlier in the month.

Briers, 42, joined from St Helens as a teenager in 1997 and went on to become the club’s all-time leading points scorer with 2,586 points in 425 appearances.

The once mercurial halfback 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.

“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.”

The club itself issued a heartfelt message with a video.
