“Mr Gill asked me to join the board and I will help him and the club and give advice when required.

“It doesn’t matter how many hours that need to be put in, I want to see Castleford Tigers be successful and I am determined to help in any way that I can to do that.

Castleford Tigers Chief executive Steve Gill said: “I am delighted that Steve Vause has agreed to join the club’s board of directors.
