Castleford Tigers have taken steps to bolster the club off the pitch with a new back-office team.

The Super League strugglers have given interim chief executive Steve Gill the role on a permanent basis and have announced a restructured commercial team.

Gill, 53, was the club's head of youth development until stepping up two months ago to replace Steve Ferres, who cited differences of opinion with the board for his decision to quit as chief executive.

The Tigers also lost commercial manager Nick Fozzard but have appointed a new commercial director in Mark Grattan and he is joined by commercial manager Richard Pell and membership manager Sally Jackson, who have all been recruited from Coca-Cola.

Castleford chairman Jack Fulton said: "I am determined to turn the fortunes of this club around and believe that will happen under the tenure of Steve Gill.

"He is a Castleford man through and through who is dedicated and devoted to leading the club to a bright future."
