LONDON Broncos have appointed a new head coach, with Danny Ward taking over the role, from Andrew Henderson who departed the club at the end of the last season.
Ward who was born in Dewsbury, signed for the Capital side as a player back in 2008, and has been at the club ever since, making 103 appearances for the club. He also played for Castleford Tigers, Hull Kingston Rovers and played 135 times for Leeds Rhinos.
He stepped up to be the club’s assistant head coach in 2015, after rising through the ranks as a coach in the academy teams.
On the new appointment Broncos chairman David Hughes said: ”Danny has been a fantastic servant to the club here in London under its many guises. London Broncos prides itself on having the ability to bring players through the system and now we are bringing through someone who we think has the ability to become a great Head Coach.”
Ward added: “I am absolutely over the moon, I have to thank the Chairman and CEO for giving me this fantastic opportunity and look forward to getting back into pre-season and starting to mould a side who can, again, make the push for promotion to the Super League.
“We have some great players at this club and I hope to give each and every one of them the benefits of my experiences and hope that we can bring out the best in what I know is a very talented group. We already have a team in place, behind the scenes, who all know how the next one thinks and so the transition from the previous Head Coach should be relatively smooth and trouble free.”
