Hunslet are delighted to announce that, following negotiations with Kenny Sykes, he has agreed to return to his role as Club Chairman.

The Board are delighted that Kenny has been persuaded to revisit his original decision and look forward to working with him again.

Kenny said “There is no doubt that the pressure brought on by a number of key issues all coming to a head at the same time were a contributing factor to my original decision.

“However, I can see that the Board have risen to meet those challenges head on and I realise that perhaps I was guilty of trying to take too much responsibility onto myself rather than utilising others on the Board.

“I am very grateful that the Board didn’t rush to appoint a replacement and have given me the time, space and encouragement to reconsider my position.

“The game is at a crossroads and now is the time for us all to pull together. Being Chairman of this Club is an honour and a privilege and I’m pleased to be back at the helm”.
