Eagles announce departing players
Sheffield Eagles can confirm several departures from the first team squad ahead of the conclusion of the 2018 Betfred Championship season this weekend.
The season draws to a close at the Olympic Legacy Park on Sunday 30th September against Rochdale Hornets, kick off 3.00pm.
The Eagles have reduced prices to just £5 for Adults and Concession and free of charge for Under 16’s so everyone has the chance to thank the 2018 squad for their efforts in what has been a difficult season.
Jon Magrin will rejoin his previous club, Bradford Bulls, Max Garcia will return to his native France with Albi whilst Iliess Macani has penned a deal with fellow Championship side Batley Bulldogs.
The club can also announce that Simon Brown, Oscar Thomas, Joshua Toole and Mark Offerdahl will also be leaving the Eagles after the current campaign but have yet to confirm their new clubs.
Matty Fozard will also depart after confirming a full-time contract at a current Betfred Championship side.
Eagles General Manager, Liam Claffey, said: “It's always difficult at this time of the year when players depart from a club and we'd like to go on record thanking all of them for their efforts in what has been an incredibly difficult campaign in 2018,"
"However it is part and parcel of any sport and Mark (Aston) is in the final stages of finishing his squad for next season and beyond.
"The club would like to wish all those departing all the best in their future careers and we hope supporters can come and give them the send-off they deserve this Sunday in our final match against Rochdale & take advantage of the £5 ticket offer we have in place for the match."
