Warrington Wolves assistant Andrew Henderson takes shock new coaching role

Keighley Cougars have announced the appointment of Andrew Henderson as Head of Rugby.

Henderson joins the club after spells as first the Head Coach of the London Broncos and then Assistant Coach of the Warrington Wolves.

He arrives at Cougar Park on a permanent basis following a stint in an advisory role bringing with him one of the highest reputations within our sport and a vast wealth of knowledge.

Andrew’s role as Head of Rugby will see him work closely alongside Managing Director Lisa Gill and Head Coach Rhys Lovegrove.

Speaking about his decision to join the Cougars, Henderson said: “I’m delighted to be joining a club that is ambitious and looking to develop such as Keighley.

“My main focus as Head of Rugby will be to oversee the Rugby League department of the club.

“I will be working very closely with the Head Coach Rhys Lovegrove in regards to recruitment and retention of the playing squad and I will certainly be there to advise, guide, and sometimes challenge him on those decisions.

“My role will also involve overseeing the performance department and putting infrastructures and systems in place to improve how we operate as well as supporting the players individually and helping to develop the coaches we have at a club.

“The Rugby department will be the main focus of my role, but I will also be on hand to assist the club in other areas such as the community side and commercially.

“I’m very excited to get started and massively looking forward to the year ahead when hopefully we will achieve something very special in the 2022 season.”
