Leeds Rhinos Wheelchair and England player James Simpson has announced his retirement from the game after an outstanding ten year career.

The Leeds born player, who made his debut for the Rhinos in 2012, played in seven Grand Finals with his team and won the title in 2018 and again in 2021.  He also captained the side to three Challenge Cup Final victories and the League Leaders Shield in 2019, 2021 and 2022.

On the international stage, James has been a regular for England and won 31 caps, playing in the World Cup for the first time in 2017 before being part of last year’s World Cup winning squad.

Speaking about the announcement, Simpson said: “I made the decision a few years ago that I would retire from playing after ten years.  I was in the army for 10 years and I played for 10 years and I just thought now would be a good time for a new challenge.  After waking up the next day after the World Cup Final, I called my partner and I felt such a sense of fulfilment and I knew I’d made the right decision to end my playing career and now it’s time to move on to something else.

“I would like to thank everyone who has been part of my journey as a player.  I’ve been really lucky to be an Ambassador for the World Cup and to have a voice in the game.  Over the last 10 years I have seen the game grow so much, from playing in little sports halls to playing on the big stage in front of 5,000 people.

“I’m stepping away at a time where I’ve seen the game reach these heights and I’m proud to have played a part in that and hopefully I’ve had an impact as an Ambassador. I’ve seen the Rhinos go from losing every game we’ve ever played to winning the treble. So it’s has been great being part of a team that’s gone from rock bottom to being a challenger every year.

“It’s been an honour to represent my home city and to play alongside some great players. It’s been such an amazing ride and I’m so proud of everything I and the club have achieved and I’m looking forward to what the future brings.

“I will be staying on as a coach and doing some stuff behind the scenes, doing what I can to make the Rhinos team even bigger and better. I’m really looking forward to moving into the coaching role more full time and the chance to not just focus on the Super League team, but also dedicating time to the second team we’ve got now as we grow the sport.”

Gary Hetherington, Chief Executive of Leeds Rhinos said: “I would like to congratulate James Simpson on his outstanding career.  He joined the Rhinos team ten years ago at a time when there was little profile for the Wheelchair game and over the next decade he played a huge role in growing the sport to where it is today.  He has enjoyed many highlights as a captain with the Rhinos, leading them to success in the Challenge Cup and Grand Finals and ended his career on the world stage as part of the England squad who secured the World Cup.   James has been a great ambassador for our club and the Wheelchair game as a player and I am sure he will continue to influence the sport and enjoy more success as a coach.”

Martin Coyd OBE, General Manager of England Wheelchair Rugby League said: “Over the past 10 years James Simpson has been a key figure in the development of Wheelchair Rugby League and especially in the increase in our sport’s profile through RLWC2021 as an ambassador for the tournament.

“I remember his first selection for the England squad in 2014 and it has been a pleasure to see his career develop both with the national team and with Leeds Rhinos as they have become a dominant force in the domestic game.

“James has set the standards for the England Team and players a critical role in shaping who we are and what we stand for. He played a massive role in the World Cup success.

“His finest hour for the Rhinos was his magnificent leadership in the 2022 Wheelchair Challenge Cup Final when he took them to victory over a Catalans Dragons team who had not lost a game since 2017 – that showed the way for England winning the World Cup.

“Congratulations to him on all he has achieved in his inspirational response to the injuries he suffered serving his country in Afghanistan – and I am delighted he will retain a significant role in Wheelchair Rugby League as the Leeds Rhinos coach, as we prepare to build on England’s World Cup win and grow the game in the UK and around the world.”

Oakgate Group has submitted a planning application to convert the historic buildings of the Mount Royale Hotel in York back into two grand family homes, restoring them to their former glory and house names of Daresbury and Beech Villas.

The planning application seeks a change of use and restoration of historical features to the Grade II listed building and will include the complete removal of the dilapidated and poor quality modern extensions at the rear and side. Improvements will also include relocation of the vehicle access from The Mount, with the gardens will landscaped to benefit the historic setting.

Removal of the modern extensions and clutter from the rear of the properties will allow the existing planning permission for two new homes in the walled grounds, to be revised to facilitate four contemporary semi-detached properties, without compromising the setting of the listed buildings.

The property has been in the Oxtoby family’s ownership since 1967 when 119 The Mount was converted into a hotel, before it was expanded to include No. 117 The Mount in 1978. The closure of the hotel was announced earlier this year, with the owners citing that it was no longer viable as a hotel.   The Grand Villas were originally built in 1834 and occupied as family homes until becoming a Hotel.

Richard France, Managing Director of Oakgate, commented: “It’s a challenge and great responsibility to be able to create a sustainable new future for these wonderful buildings, bringing them back to their former glory, and original use.

“The additional homes within the walled gardens off Albemarle Road have been designed to perfectly complement the existing villas and build on the two previous planning permissions to create high-quality environmentally friendly family homes in this wonderful location.”

Oakgate Group has been involved in various York City Centre development projects in sensitive environments including the transformation of Stonebow House and has a current planning application for the former Tramways WMC.

A funding deal has been agreed between Caddick Group, Goldman Sachs Asset Management and Canmoor, which will see work commence on a new employment hub in Leyland, Preston. Following planning approval earlier in the year, construction is underway targeting delivery of the 544,000 sq. ft. warehouse in July 2023.

The scheme represents a considerable investment in the region and will be the biggest speculative development of its type in the North West this year, addressing the acute demand for quality logistics and warehousing space. Situated with direct links to M6, M65 and M61 motorway networks the development offers excellent connectivity to the whole of the North West region.

The Connect 6, Preston is expected to bring over 1,000 jobs to the area once complete, and around 600 jobs during construction, which will be carried out by Caddick Construction North West. The building will reach practical completion in July 2023.

Steve Widdowson, Head of Caddick Developments in the North West, said:

Connect 6, Preston is an incredibly exciting scheme and we’re delighted to have investors of the calibre of Goldman Sachs and Canmoor coming on board to take this development forward. The deal means we can push ahead with developing out the site and help introduce much-needed capacity into the Industrial and Logistics market in the North West. Caddick’s vertically integrated offer has once again demonstrated the value of being able to act fast in addressing supply-shortages in quality locations.”

Farbod Nia, Managing Director at Goldman Sachs Asset Management, said:

“This investment aligns with our wider strategy to deliver best in class logistics space in well-connected, high-quality locations, specified to meet the requirements of modern occupiers and the highest sustainability standards. The building will help address the supply and demand imbalance in the North West market by providing occupiers with greatly needed space. We look forward to working with our partners Canmoor and Caddick Group on this exciting development”

Tom White, Director at Canmoor, said:

“This development addresses an acute need for this type of development in the North West of England. Moreover, the scheme is set to lead the way from an environmental point of view, being BREEAM Excellent rated, whilst enjoying unparalleled links to local infrastructure.”
