Championship Grand Final winner joins Dewsbury coaching staff

A former Championship Grand Final winner has become Lee Greenwood’s new assistant coach at Dewsbury.

Jack Howieson led Sheffield to back-to-back title wins as captain in 2012 and 2013 and enjoyed a long career with the Eagles.

He got his break as a coach in the professional game with Hemel in 2018, where he worked alongside Mitch Stringer and Tim Farnden.

Rams boss Greenwood said: “He was the captain in a very strong Sheffield side, which included a lot of experience and quality players.

“He understands the game and will bring his own ideas, enthusiasm and a real work ethic.

“I have spoken to numerous people that say he has a good coaching career ahead of him and this is a brilliant move for him after coaching at Hemel previously.”

Former Rams assistants Rikki Sheriffe and Gareth Greenwood left the club last month.
