« I’m really disappointed that I can’t put on the black and white jersey one last time, but unfortunately I’m not right to play yet

« I would have loved to fight Hull KR, my former club, because derbies are always special matches and Hull has been a great club for me

« I am very grateful to the club for all they have done for me and for allowing me and my family to return home and settle in before we embark on the next chapter of our life « 

Kelly arrived in Hull from the Gold Coast Titans, signing a two-year contract with Rovers where he had an instant impact, winning the 2015 Player of the Year award

Leaving Craven Park at the conclusion of his contract in 2016, he made a controversial but short trip to West Hull and was a key figure in helping FC regain the Challenge Cup in 2017

« Hull will always be a special place for us, we made great memories and very good friends at both clubs, » Kelly added

« We had our son here so it will always be special for us and maybe one day we will come back with him when the kids are older, watch a few games and show them where he is from

« I wish all the boys and staff the best of luck for the future and thank everyone who supported us during our stay in Hull »

FC and Kelly part ways on good terms, with Blacks and Whites reportedly looking to sign a new half-back for next season, a search that has intensified following Jamie Shaul’s injury which could see Jake Connor moving to back for much of next season
