KEIGHLEY Cougars are dealing with the blow of losing another couple of key players, but have made one eye-catching signing in particular.

Following the club’s relegation from the Betfred Championship last month, Toby Everett and Robbie Storey have both officially departed the club.

The loss of centre Storey is a bitter blow, just days after he won the club’s rising star award.

Cougars have however brought in prop Lewis Hatton, following his departure from Widnes, a player many still consider more than good enough to play in the second tier.

Young winger Codey Downey has also been brought in from the Huddersfield Giants, while Charlie Graham and Ben Stead have both signed new deals to extend their stays at Cougar Park.
