RETIRED Giants vice captain Darren Turner will join the rest of the Super League squad for an emotional farewell to the fans at the end of Sunday's game against Salford at the Galpharm (3.00).
Julian Bailey, Brandon Costin and Darren Fleary will be playing their final game for the Giants and have invited Turner to join them on a lap of honour to mark the occasion.
The Huddersfield-born hooker was forced to retire with a knee injury earlier in the season, with his final game coming against St Helens in the Cup semi-final defeat on April 25.
Turner admits this weekend will be emotional and is hoping the fans turn out in force to give the departing players a memorable send-off.
"I'm absolutely delighted I've been invited to join the rest of the boys. It shows they haven't forgotten about me," he said.
"Injuries in the second half of the season, including mine, have taken some of the gloss off what has to go down as a fantastic season.
"I hope that's the way the fans see it, and that they will show their appreciation to all the players this weekend.
"But I'm sure a lot of the focus will be on Darren, Brandon and Julian.
"They've all been superb servants of this club and deserve full recognition for what they have done.
"It is players like this who have firmly helped establish Huddersfield in Super League and I know they will be missed."
Turner's significant midfield presence has also been missed in the second half of the season as the results have dipped.
But the 30-year-old, who will be joined on Sunday's final lap of honour by his son Hanley, believes the club are recruiting players capable of plugging the considerable gaps being left by Turner and the others.
"I think the Giants will have a fabulous season next year and I will be backing them all the way," he added.
"The quality of signings the club are making shows they mean business."
