HE has just hung up the boots after a career which saw him help his hometown club Warrington Wolves to two Challenge Cup titles.

Now, Tyrone McCarthy is going back to where it all began.

The Ireland international forward, who also played for the likes of Hull KR, Salford Red Devils and Australian sides St George Illawarra Dragons and Northern Pride, has been confirmed as part of the coaching set up at Woolston Rovers – the club at which he started out as a junior.

He will serve as a coaching consultant at Monk Sports Club as part of a new-look coaching structure for the 2022 season.

Billy Sheen has been added to the staff for the first team, which will continue to be led by head of coaching Mal Holt and assistant coach Rob Campbell.

Liam Lawton and Mal Mason will lead the ‘A’ team in the North West Men’s League while the under 18s side will have Dom Ball as head coach and Rob Griffiths as his assistant.

“It really is an exciting time for us and we are delighted to see the coaching structure that Mal has put in place,” club chairman Steve Moore said.

“To have Tyke coming on board as a coaching consultant is fantastic and with the addition of Billy Sheen, Dom Ball and Rob Griffiths to complement the great work done by Mal, Rob Campbell, Liam Lawton and Mal Mason over the past few years, we are in a really good place.”
