On his departure, Radford said: “With the club and myself heading in different directions, I think making this early call will be the correct one.

"Hopefully, it can kick start their season starting this Friday away at Huddersfield.

“I’d like to thank on record the fans, management, coaching staff, and players and wish them all the best for 2023 and beyond.”

Castleford’s assistant coach Andy Last will take charge of their game against Huddersfield on Friday.
