Keighley Cougars legend Martin Wood is the latest player to be honoured by inclusion in the club’s prestigious Hall of Fame.

He is to be inducted on Friday, May 27, with proceedings starting at 7.30pm.

Wood, now living and working near Perth in Western Australia, won’t be at the evening but a special video interview by former playing colleague Jason Ramshaw will be shown. Former chairman Mick O’Neill will be at the evening and video interviews with other Cougars greats now living in Australia will be shown.

Wood signed for Keighley in 1992 from Halifax by way of a short spell with Scarborough Pirates. He had a brief spell away from Keighley, winning a Challenge Cup medal with Sheffield Eagles in 1998, but returned to the club in 1999.

He finally left Cougars in 2002, going on to coach Workington Town.

Wood moved out to Australia with his family about ten months ago but is still involved in the game, coaching Rockingham Sharks in Perth.

In his Cougars career, he played 215 times (four substitute appearances), scoring 116 tries, 300 goals and four drop goals, making 1,068 points.
