Halifax have announced the signing of Zack McComb who joins the club on a two-year deal ahead of the 2021 Championship campaign.
McComb becomes Simon Grix’s third new signing ahead of the 2021 Championship season after the announcements of Greg Worthington and Connor Robinson.
The 25-year-old centre and former Siddal junior joins the club after impressing at both Oldham where he helped them win promotion to the Championship and most recently Sheffield Eagles where he impressed in 2020 before the pandemic struck.
Reacting to the news, he said: “Obviously it’s class to sign for my hometown club, I think with the team Grixy’s put together it’s going to be a really enjoyable year for the squad and fans.
“I’m really looking forward to just getting back training never mind playing. It’ll be good to meet all the lads, hopefully I’ll stop getting booted from the what’s app group then.”
Head Coach Grix added: “While we aren’t in a position to produce our own at present we do keep an eye on players from our area and Zack is one of these. He enjoyed success at Oldham before moving onto Sheffield for the 2020 season.”
“We actually had him before, but the time away has served him well and we will welcome back an improved player.
“He is a confident bloke, strong, agile and works hard on his game. He’s coming here to challenge himself and push for a place in his hometown team.”
