DEPARTED Giant Martin Aspinwall believes Huddersfield can become an even bigger top-flight power.
The 28-year-old former Great Britain winger has been released early by the Giants due to injury.
Aspinwall has been told he will not be handed a new Galpharm contract for 2011 and is now hunting a new club.
“I’ve had five great years here. They’ve been the best of my career,” said Aspinwall.
“But you can never take anything for granted, and having to move clubs is part and parcel of being a professional.
“Earlier in the season, when I was starting to play regularly, I had been hoping the club might offer me something, but I then picked up a couple of injuries and I could see those chances going.
“I knew I needed to be playing regularly, and that obviously didn’t happen. There are certainly no hard feelings towards the club over this, and I can now see why there’s probably no room for me.
“When they are in a position to bring in players of the quality of an Australia Test second-row forward like Luke O’Donnell it’s obviously going to mean reshaping things.
“Signings like this show the Giants really do mean business and I’m sure they’ll go on to become even stronger.”
Aspinwall added: “When I first came here from Wigan (along with Stephen Wild, who has also yet to be offered a new Giants contract and has been linked with a move to Salford), I did have some slight reservations.
“But it didn’t take me too long to realise this was a good move for me, and so it proved. The Giants will always be special to me.”
