BRANDON MOORE ANNOUNCED AS PANTHERS CAPTAIN
Halifax Panthers are delighted to announce Brandon Moore as the new club captain replacing the departed Scott Murrell who held the role for the previous eight seasons.
Brandon will start his sixth season at the Shay in 2021 and has recently put pen to paper on a new deal with the Panthers that will see the no nonsense cumbrian remain at the club until the end of 2022 at the very least.
A fans favourite, Brandon has become one of the hottest properties outside of Super League and is seen as a model professional both on and off the filed who leads by example and inspires the men around him.
At the age of just 24 Brandon becomes one of the youngest captains in the game but it is seen as a role that the hooker will thrive on and head coach Simon Grix agreed,
“This hasn’t taken too long to decide but being an appointment that we needed to get right, we weren’t in a rush. After discussions with people I respect within the club and externally we can confirm Brandon Moore is our new club captain.”
“Brandon is well respected within our group because of the consistency of his actions. These actions are inspirational and 100% team first.”
“He is a more reserved character than our former captain, that is for sure, bringing different qualities to the role.”
“I don’t expect him to try and be anything but himself. He has a group of players around him who will support him in this role, a role that he is extremely proud of.”
Brandon Moore on being named the Panthers captain,
“Firstly I would like to thank Grixy in placing his trust in me to captain the side , it came unexpectedly but is a huge honour and one I couldn’t turn down..”
“I obviously have big boots to fill, Muzza was a great leader who has been at the for front of all fax’s success in recent years and has been a big influence on me since joining the club in 2016.”
“I really enjoy playing here and going into my sixth season at the club I feel my best rugby is still ahead of me and with the squad we have building I am really excited and can’t wait to get out there and start playing some rugby“
