Simon Grix – Head Coach

BSc Sports and Exercise Science and PGCE both Honours gained at The University of Bolton.

After debuting for Halifax in Super League as a 17 year old in 2003, Simon left at the end of the following year to join Super League side Warrington Wolves where he would play for 12 years. 

During his time with Warrington, Grix played in two grand finals, unfortunately missing out on a winners ring on both occassions. 

He has been mooted as one of the most naturally gifted players of his generation, but sadly injury hampered his obvious potential. Grix missed out on selection for three Challenge Cup Finals and a World Cup due to injury. 

During his time with Warrington, Grix played in two grand finals, unfortunately missing out on a winners ring on both occassions.

In 2016, he returned home to The Shay as player/assistant coach under then Fax boss Richard Marshall. He continued his coaching development alongside his playing career before taking the reigns full time in 2019 following Marshall’s departure. 

Entering his third year in charge and with a fresh squad at his disposal, the future looks bright for Grix and Halifax.
