Bosses at Castleford Tigers have announced the permanent appointment of Steve Gill as the club’s chief executive.

The Super League side released a statement on Saturday confirming Mr Gill’s position at the helm of the Wheldon Road club.

Mr Gill, 53, stepped into the role as interim chief executive two months ago following the departure of Steve Ferres.

He said: “During my time as interim CEO I have recognised some opportunities that would help build on the solid foundations that already exist.

“As well as producing a winning team on the field I want to increase the involvement of our loyal supporters and protect the proud traditions that we have.

“I can assure fans that my team and I will work tirelessly to get Castleford Tigers back where it needs to be in the rightful place of the upper echelons of Super League.”

Mr Gill is joined by commercial director Mark Grattan and commercial manager Richard Pell, who both join Tigers from Coca-Cola.
