Hall and Scruton extend stays as nine other depart club…

Following on from the season ending the week before last, the club has been working hard with regards to contract negotiations, with players Craig Hall and Nick Scruton both agreeing to extend their stays at KCOM Craven Park, with Chris Clarkson, Ben Kavanagh, Danny Tickle, James Donaldson, Matty Marsh and Liam Salter all departing the club.

Scruton joined the club ahead of the 2017 season from Wakefield Trinity and helped the club secure promotion to Super League at the first opportunity after agreeing to honour his contract with the club after the 2016 relegation. During the last two seasons Scruton has made forty nine appearances and crossed for six tries for the club. Scruton will now remain with the Robins for at least another year after agreeing terms on a one year deal, speaking to hullkr.co.uk, Scruton said “I’m over the moon to agree a new contract with the club, I have enjoyed my time here over the past two seasons and I am already looking forward to getting started again with pre-season ahead of what promises to be an exciting 2019 season.”

Hall re-joined the club before the last game of the regular season and made his ‘second debut’ in the victory over Hull FC at the KCOM stadium in a two try performance which also gained him the Man of the Match award. Hall’s return went from strength to strength with him crossing for fourteen tries in only eight appearances, with him also passing fifty tries for the club in total. Hall has signed a one year extension and said to hullkr.co.uk “I couldn’t be happier to be staying here for another year, when the opportunity came around for me to come back to Rovers it was a no-brainer for me and I have loved the last few months being back at the club.”

Leaving the club will be Chris Clarkson, Ben Kavanagh, Danny Tickle, James Donaldson, Brad Clavering, Kieren Moss, Jordan Walne, Liam Salter and Matty Marsh, the club would like to place on record their appreciation for the players efforts during their careers at KCOM Craven Park and wish them well for the future.
