Hunslet RLFC can today confirm the loan signing of Newcastle Thunder full back Lewis Young until the end of the 2021 Betfred League 1 campaign.

One of Head Coach Alan Kilshaw’s first objectives when arriving at the Club was to secure the services of talented fullback Lewis Young when his loan period came to an end in July.

Thanks to Accuratus Consulting Ltd and lifelong supporter Tom Haley, the Club were able to finance a deal.

Tom is the founder of Accuratus Consulting who specialise in providing expert commercial, procurement and dispute resolution services to companies in the construction industry.

Tom commented “I know how hard everyone is working at the Club to get us in the play-off places.

“Unfortunately Jimmy Watson looks like he will be out for the rest of the season so it was important we got a quality replacement.

“I’m delighted we can support the Club in this way”.

Head Coach Alan Kilshaw commented “Fullback is a key position in any team and I have been impressed with Lewis since arriving.

“I’d like to thank Tom for helping this deal happen, it puts us in a much healthier position as we get to the business end of the season”.
