Castleford Tigers sign Martin Aspinwall from Huddersfield Giants

Aspinwall joins Castleford

Former Giant arrives at the Jungle

Castleford Tigers have once again strengthened their squad with the signing of Martin Aspinwall from Huddersfield Giants.

Aspinwall joined the Giants five years ago as a winger from Wigan Warriors, but over the years he has moved into the pack and is now a very handy second rower.

Aspinwall becomes coach Terry Matterson’s sixth signing of pre-season and he arrives at the Jungle with Richard Mathers (Warrington), Danny Orr (Harlequins), Nick Youngquest (Crusaders RL) plus former St Helens duo Nick Fozzard and Jacob Emmitt.

The 29-year-old said: “I'm happy to join the Tigers. They are what I call a proper Rugby League club with great tradition and I'm really looking forward to getting started.

"There are some very skilful players at the club who can score a lot of points and I think there is a lot of potential here.

"They were unlucky not to make the play-offs last season and there's a lot of focus on making sure we make the ‘eight' this year. I'm excited about being a part of that.

"I think I'll bring a bit of mobility to the pack; it's one of my strengths and I will always give 100%.

"I've been playing in the back row for approximately 18 months now and I had a really good pre season last year where I got comfortable with the position. I was going well and feeling good until I injured my shoulder and that was the end of the season for me.

"I'm fit again now and I can't wait to get back into it. I've only signed a one-year deal and I'm going to do all I can to get an extended contract with the club."
