Former Great Britain international Richard Horne has been left pondering his future after being informed he will not be offered a new contract by Hull FC.
During his 16 years at the KC Stadium, starting out in the Airlie Birds junior setup, Horne has won the adoration of the Hull faithful while making in excess of 300 appearances for the club.
Horne, 32, has already started coaching with the club’s Under-16 side and reports have suggested the half-back could be in line to join Lee Radford’s coaching staff.
It’s been a great 16 years and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. The highs and the lows and it’ll be strange not to be turning up next year and being a part of it all.
Although disappointed not to be awarded a new contract, Horne is determined to finish his career with a flourish.
“I’ve been informed that I won’t be offered a new deal next year so for me, I want to finish on a high,” Horne told the Hull Daily Mail.
“It’s been a great 16 years and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. The highs and the lows and it’ll be strange not to be turning up next year and being a part of it all.
“At the moment, I’m just contemplating my options of what I could do. I could stay here with the club in a coaching aspect.
“I’m still in talks with the club in what we’re going to do. There hasn’t been a final decision made yet. I’m just seeing how we go with the rest of the year.”
