Halifax RLFC has announced that chairman Michael Steele has stood down from an active role on the club's board to become club president, ending a near 15-year tenure as an executive of the club.

Fellow directors Mike Riley and Ian Croad have also been thanked by the club for their years of service.

Halifax coach Richard Marshall added his well wishes on the club website:

"On a personal note, I'd like to wish Michael a fantastic retirement. Michael has worked tirelessly to support this club and make it what it is today. It's a privilege to work at Halifax RLFC and Michael has been such a great chairman for me personally and so supportive to the club when it really needed it. I am grateful for the opportunity he gave me to coach this superb team and I am sure he will stay around as part of the 'Fax Family'. Best wishes to his wife Glenda also who I have no doubt will be cheering us on from the stands in 2018 and beyond. Thanks must also go to Mike and Ian for their dedication to the cause. I wish them all the very best for the future."
