Steve Price to depart Warrington at end of season

Warrington Wolves have confirmed that Head Coach Steve Price will depart the club at the end of the 2021 Betfred Super League season. 

Price took the reins at the Halliwell Jones Stadium ahead of the 2018 season and led Warrington to both domestic finals in his first season before lifting silverware in the form of the Betfred Challenge Cup at Wembley Stadium against St Helens in 2019.

The Australian will remain in charge of the club throughout the 2021 season before returning home with his family. 

Speaking on the decision, Price said: “Warrington Wolves is a wonderful club and one that I am hugely proud to be able to represent. I cannot thank everyone enough for the opportunity given to me.

“It has been a huge decision but after speaking at length with my wife and daughters, we all feel that it will be the right time to return home once my current contract expires at the end of the forthcoming season.

“In the meantime, I remain wholly committed to the club and getting the absolute best out of our playing group throughout 2021 to leave Warrington Wolves in a powerful position both on and off the field.

“After speaking with the Board, my coaching staff and the players, we felt that it was best to be honest and open with this news before the season commences, leaving us to focus on the task in hand.

“I would love nothing more than to go out on a high and give this club and its supporters what they truly deserve. 

Warrington Wolves’ Chairman, Stuart Middleton, added: “We would like to thank Steve for all the hard work and effort that he has put into the club since joining in 2018. He and his family have really engaged with and embraces the Warrington community, and they will move on at the end of the year with our best wishes.

“A highlight of Steve’s tenure was lifting the Challenge Cup in 2019 and I know he is committed to replicating this success in the Super League in 2021.

“He knows he has got an important job to do this year and wants to bow out in the right manner. 

“We will now commence a thorough process to ensure we bring in the right person to take the club forward in 2022 and beyond.”
