Dewsbury Moor have announced the appointment of Danny Maun as their new head coach.

Maun steps into the role following James Delaney’s recent announcement that he will be stepping down.

Former Rams hooker Delaney has enjoyed a hugely successful spell in charge of the Marooons, leading the team to back-to-back promotions in the last two seasons.

Maun enjoyed a spell as a player with Dewsbury Rams between 2005 and 2007, but is best known for his association with Batley Bulldogs, for whom he made more than 150 appearances.

The 37-year-old came out of retirement to play for the Bulldogs in Toronto earlier this year and has featured as a player for Moor during the 2018 season.

He also played for Featherstone and Hunslet and is currently a part of the coaching staff at the Bulldogs.

The Rams would like to congratulate Delaney on his fantastic achievements during his spell as head coach, and wish new boss Maun the very best in the role.
