Castleford Tigers can confirm that promising forward Luis Johnson has been recalled from his loan spell by parent club Hull Kingston Rovers (Hull KR).
The 24-year-old had joined the Tigers at the beginning of April, returning to the club where he had progressed through their scholarship and academy ranks during his younger years.
During his brief stint at Wheldon Road, Johnson made a notable impact, showcasing his talent and potential.
He marked his Castleford First Team debut with an impressive performance in a victory over local rivals Wakefield Trinity. In total, he featured in four matches for the Tigers, leaving a positive impression on fans and teammates alike.
The decision to recall Johnson from his loan spell is indicative of Hull KR’s recognition of his development and desire to utilise his skills within their own ranks.
While his departure may leave a void in the Castleford squad, the Tigers’ management and coaching staff have expressed their gratitude to Luis for his contributions during his time at the club.
Johnson’s recall marks the end of his short-lived return to Castleford, but the Fords’ hierarchy and supporters are optimistic about his future endeavours.
As he embarks on the next chapter of his career, everyone associated with the Tigers wishes him the very best and remains proud of his achievements, both as a product of the club’s youth system and as a valued member of the First Team.
