Wire legend Lee Briers to leave club at the end of the season


Lee Briers will leave Warrington Wolves after 25 years as player and coach at the end of the season.

Briers, now 42, joined from St Helens as a teenager in 1997 and went on to become the club’s all-time leading points scorer with 2,586 points in 425 appearances.

He said: “I’m extremely thankful to the Club for the last 25 years. I’ve achieved some incredible things and have loved every minute of my time here. I’ve experienced everything – the highs, the lows and the in-betweens.

“I want to thank all the fans for taking me in back in 1997 as a young boy who’s now leaving as a man. We as a family have all taken to Warrington and my kids have both grown up to be big Warrington fans.

“There are thousands of people I could thank who had a big impact on my career both in playing and in coaching.

“It is an emotional and scary time to be leaving after 25 years but on reflection this is the right time to go and experience something else which is quite exciting and scary at the same time. I wish Daryl Powell and the Club all the best for 2022 onwards.”

Briers helped Warrington Wolves to three Challenge Cup successes and a League Leaders’ Shield, before retiring in 2013.

After hanging up his boots, the former Wales international became head coach of the Under 19s and reserve sides before stepping up to assist the first team in 2018.

He will leave at the end of the season along with head coach Steve Price, fellow assistant Andrew Henderson and head of analysts Jack Phillips, with new coach Daryl Powell expected to appoint his own backroom team.
