CASTLEFORD Tigers head coach Terry Matterson will leave the club at the end of the Super League XVI season after six years as Tigers boss.

Matterson, 44, said: “I think it’s time to move on. I’ve had a fantastic time at Cas’ and I’m proud of the growth the club has experienced in my time.”

The Australian, who joined the club in 2005, added: “I’ve overseen the development of some outstanding juniors at Cas’ and I’m content on leaving the club in good shape.”

Castleford chief executive Richard Wright said: “Terry has brought a level of professionalism to the club that is required at this level.

“He has guided us to become a competitive force in Super League and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

“Meanwhile, our aims are to secure a home play-off draw and to make the Wembley Cup Final.

“We remain in a position to meet those aims and we will be fully focused on doing so.”

It is anticipated Matterson will return to Australia after the current season with a view to joining the coaching staff of an NRL club.
