Cougars have expressed their condolences after former player Richard Bloomfield passed away last Friday.

He signed for Keighley as an 18-year-old in January 1957 and made his debut in December 1958 at home to Whitehaven in a 22-5 win.

Bloomfield played 95 games for the club, scoring six tries and kicking 37 goals in an 89-point haul.

Former club physio and lifelong Keighley resident Jack Taylor also passed away last Wednesday, aged 92, having served the club during the 1960s.

His funeral takes place tomorrow at 1pm at David Gallaghers Funeral Services, Airedale House on Skipton Road, Utley.
