Castleford Tigers chairman Jack Fulton has assured fans of the club’s future despite the resignations of the three senior personnel in the last week.

Fulton, who has financed the club for over 20 years, said: “This club has been built on loyalty and passion for approaching 90 years. It has had plenty of ups and downs behind the scenes and it no doubt will in future.

“While this last week has been a turbulent one off the pitch, and this situation is not ideal by any stretch, the club will continue to deliver a side competing in Super League as the team has done so proudly against much bigger, more fancied clubs than ourselves so far this season.

“I’d like to assure fans of the club’s future by reiterating that the driving force of my financing of this great club is keeping it going as a Super League operation ready for the day when it can support itself and this position remains unchanged.

“I have faith in Steve Gill (interim CEO) and the existing staff members that they are united and will continue to do this club proud in the weeks to come whilst we recruit more people who want to be at the club and help us realise our aims.”

Earlier, the Tigers confirmed the resignations of Nick and Sarah Fozzard from their posts as commercial manager and marketing manager.

Marketing Manager Sarah joined the club in the summer on a short term basis to deliver the club’s membership scheme while former player Nick began his commercial manager’s role in March last year.

Their resignations follow Steve Ferres’s decision to quit as chief executive last week
