MARTYN RIDYARD SIGNS ON LOAN FOR HUDDERSFIELD GIANTS

Leigh Centurions half-back joins on loan

Huddersfield Giants have announced the signing of experienced half-back Martyn Ridyard on loan.

A seasoned professional, Ridyard has made over 200 appearances for Leigh and was a key component in their promotion winning season in 2016.

Ridyard made his name for his creativity and attacking instinct from the halves and Giants Head Coach Rick Stone was delighted with the signing:

“I know Martyn, he’s an experienced playmaker and he’s been around a long while. He’s shown that he can run a team and move a team around the park, he’s got a good kicking game and obviously he was one of the influential parts of getting Leigh into the top grade last year when they went through the Middle 8’s. So obviously he’s handled pressure pretty well, he’s keen for an opportunity and we need a half-back so it’s a good fit for both parties.”

“I think he’ll be really exciting, I think personally he’ll be excited because he’s an experienced player with a bit to prove to himself and maybe a few other people and we need someone of that ilk to help us right now. I’m looking forward to working with him and there’s a fair chance he’ll play for us next time we play at the Dacia Magic Weekend and he’s got to have a bit of a crash course by the time we get going next week to get himself ready.”

Ridyard was also happy to make the move to the Giants and is looking forward to getting started for the Claret and Gold:

“I’m really excited about a new challenge and to work in a new environment. I’m also grateful for the opportunity to get some game time and consistency under my belt at such a great club.”
