Louis Potts, Jay Kelly and Jordan Holt have all left the club and will be looking for new challenges on 2021/22.

Explaining the departures Grainger said: “Being young lads we couldn’t guarantee them the game time for their own development and that’s something we spoke to them about. 

“They are all good lads and they represented the club really well whenever called upon and we wish them all the very best.

“I want to see them kick-on and have bright futures in the game so fingers crossed they can do that.” 

The new season is still four and a half months away, so Thursday’s 90-minute session at Penrith rugby union club won’t be continued right the way through.louis potts.png  

Grainger and assistant Stephen Rudd plan to keep the once-a-week sessions for a few weeks before having a break and then coming back for a proper, intense pre-season.

“It’s just been good to get back and see everyone again after lockdown. It’s a long time not to be involved in football.

“After last season we had a chat and decided we needed to retain our players and keep them on their toes with new arrivals.

“We needed a freshness and to bring in players who were ready to challenge for a first team spot.

“I think we were a bit light on that last year, to be honest, with not having a proper pre-season, a few lads have injuries and things like that,” said the manager.
