COUGARS have confirmed that Liam Senior and Aaron Nicholson have left the club.

Senior joined Keighley ahead of this season following his decision to turn down a full-time deal at Super League side Wakefield Trinity.

But the highly-rated youngster has been unable to fully commit to training duo to his university and work commitments outside of the game and the second-row forward has been released from his contract by mutual agreement.

Nicholson also departs, having re-joined the club ahead of the 2018 season from Oxford RL.

The former Cougars scholar and reserves forward did not feature in his second spell due to surgery during the off-season.
