Rugby League: Hull FC forward joins Leigh
Hull FC today (Friday, October 6th) announced that utility forward Jordan Thompson has joined Kingstone Press Championship side Leigh Centurions. Thompson, who joined the Black and Whites in 2014, has taken up a two-year deal with Neil Jukes’ men, who were recently relegated to the second tier after losing the Million Pound Game to Catalans Dragons.
A former England Academy representative, Thompson joined Hull from his hometown club Castleford, making his Tigers debut in 2009. The 26-year-old made over 100 appearances for the Airlie Birds, scoring 12 tries in all competitions during his four-year stay in East Yorkshire. Thompson helped FC in their 2016 Challenge Cup semi-final victory over Wigan Warriors to book their place at Wembley, which saw them go on to clinch their first win in the nation’s capital in the Cup. The utility forward played a part in this year’s Cup success, scoring in the sixth round win over Catalans Dragons.
Hull FC head coach Lee Radford said: “First and foremost I’d like to thank Jordan for his time at the club. He always trained and played as an energiser and played with such energy to help others around him. The development of Brad Fash and Masi Matongo has limited Jordan’s playing time this year and I understand that someone at his age needs to be playing regular first-team football.”
