“For me he was the stand-out candidate,” said Todd.
“He will bring a no-nonsense approach to the club, which is good.
“And obviously his pedigree is rugby league is excellent. He did a good job at Workington Town and he is well known and respected in the amateur game.
“We hope that he can help us build bridges with the amateur clubs.
