Half-back Cory Aston is to leave Halifax Panthers after just one year at the club.

The 27-year-old joined the Panthers from London Broncos ahead of the 2022 Betfred Championship but has found first team game time hard to come by, spending time out on loan with Sheffield Eagles during the season.

The former Leeds Rhinos and Castleford Tigers man will leave The Shay early despite signing a two year deal on his arrival.

Panthers head coach Simon Grix said: “Cory was great this last season whenever called upon.

“This is rugby league, we had good competition in all areas, and none of us have a crystal ball. Sometimes it just doesn’t go as expected.

"After the last couple of years and where Cory is at in his career, he wants and needs to be playing regularly, and we respect that. Due to the competition for places, there are no guarantees for anyone on that here.

"There is certainly no ill feeling, and I wish him all the best. He’s a quality player and person who will benefit his next club without question.”
