Middleton paid tribute to the way Price and his family have embraced living in the town and pointed to the memorable Challenge Cup Final win over St Helens in 2019 as a highlight.

He also says Price was keen to stress his wish to bow out "in the right manner" in conversations with the board.

"We would like to thank Steve for all the hard work and effort that he has put into the Club since joining in 2018," Middleton said.

"He and his family have really engaged with and embraced the Warrington community and they will move on at the end of the year with our best wishes.

“A highlight of Steve’s tenure was lifting the Challenge Cup in 2019 and I know he is committed to replicating this success in the Super League for 2021.

“He knows he has got an important job to do this year and wants to bow out in the right manner.

“We will now commence a thorough process to ensure we bring in the right person to take the Club forward in 2022 and beyond.”
