Castleford have announced that club legend Trevor Briggs has died. He was 67.

Briggs, who played either winger or full-back, made 338 appearances for the club after joining from Kippax RLFC in July 1964.

During his 13-year association with the club, Briggs, who played his last game for Cas in a 14-14 with Hull FC in November 1977, scored 92 tries and was part of the sides which won the Challenge Cup in 1969 and 1970.

Castleford chief executive Steve Gill told the club's official website: "It has come as a great shock to everyone who knew Trevor. He was a tremendous player and a great club man.

"His memory will live for a long time at Castleford Tigers and the thoughts of everyone at the club are with his family and friends."

Geoff Smith from the Castleford Tigers Players' Association said: "We are deeply saddened by the loss of one of our favourite members.

"Everyone at the Castleford Players' Association sends their condolences to Trevor's family and friends at this sad time."
