NEWS | Green handed three-month testimonial

25th August 2019

Dons’ legend Pete Green has been granted a three-month testimonial by the RFL for his services to the sport of rugby league.

Green made more than 250 appearances for the Dons during 10 seasons with the club across two spells, and scored 60 tries in the process.

He was in interim charge of the team ahead of Richard Horne’s appointment in 2017, and was subsequently named as assistant head coach following Horne’s arrival.

Chief executive Carl Hall said: “As soon as Pete came back to the club I spoke to him about getting the testimonial sorted for him so it’s great to finally get it over the line.

“Everyone knows how much the Green family have done for the club and Pete has had a great career with ourselves and Sheffield.

“I couldn’t think of anyone more deserving of this, we’ve submitted things quietly and I was emotional telling Pete about it because he’s not the type of person to make a fuss.

“I’m sure the fans who have watched him over the years will get out there and support him over the three months and we will announce in due course when it will start and finish.”
