Castleford Tigers rugby membership chief govt Steve Gill was “viciously” assaulted throughout a town-centre assault, the membership has mentioned.
The Betfred Tremendous League leaders mentioned the assault occurred in Bridge Road, Castleford, early on Friday.
A press release from the membership thanked emergency companies, who it mentioned have been known as to the scene and responded rapidly.
The Tigers wished Mr Gill, who’s now recovering at house, a speedy restoration.
His affiliation together with his home-town membership started greater than 50 years in the past when he operated the scoreboard.
He held the position of assistant coach earlier than changing into head of youth in 2008 and 4 years in the past took over from Steve Ferres as chief govt.
He has overseen an increase in fortunes of the Tigers, who gained a 66-10 win over Leeds on Thursday to take care of their unbeaten begin to the season.
