I would like to thank you for donating to my testimonial fund and the RFL for awarding me a three month testimonial by the Rugby Football League for my services to the game.
It seems like a lifetime ago when I started at Hunslet Hawks in 1996, but it has gone so fast with so many highlights
I started at HUNSLET HAWKS (1996-1999) with the club giving me my first opportunity to play professional Rugby League and I played for then 51 times, scoring 5 tries.
I then moved to HALIFAX BLUE SOX (2000-2002) in their Super League years and also played for them 51 times, scoring 3 tries.
My next moves was to CASTLEFORD TIGERS (2003-2004) where I played 21 times, scoring 5 tries.
In 2005 I achieved many of my career highlights. I played for HULL FC for the season - in 35 games, scoring 5 tries - and we won the Challenge Cup in the classic final against Leeds Rhinos. I also made my debut for GREAT BRITAIN and was individually named in the Super League Dream Team, capping off a fantastic year.
Between 2006 and 2007 I played for LEEDS RHINOS, a team which has been named World Club Champions the year before and during the early years of their golden era. I played 34 games scoring 7 tries.
In 2008, I signed for two more years at Hull FC under Peter Sharp and Richard Agar in Super League playing a further 42 games for the club and scoring 4 tries. Thus in total for the club I played 77 games scoring 9 tries.
I joined CRUSADERS RL in 2010, playing 19 games and scoring 3 tries in their most successful Super League season in which we made the play-offs.
In 2011 I signed for BARROW RAIDERS (2011) and played 21 games scoring 3 tries
At WORKINGTON TOWN (2012-2013) I played 52 games and scored 21 tries, including 16 in the 2012 season which was the most prolific in my career.
I played for ATHERTON ROOSTERS in Australia in 2014, scoring 6 tries in just 10 games.
My current club LONDON BRONCOS (2015-2016) is a team I have played for 30 times (upto and including the Leigh Centurions home game) and I have scored 6 tries in 30 appearances to date.
Over my career I have also had the pleasure of loan or dual registration appearances at Doncaster, South Wales Scorpions and London Skolaes.
TESTIMONIALI have had a few things happen so far. At Blackpool, the players wore my specially designed shirt against Sheffield Eagles. Against Leigh Centurions I have had a raffle, a specially designed program and a bucket collection. I'm looking to step things up and appreciate your support.
