Hull FC are delighted to announce the signing of Ed Chamberlain from Leigh Leopards for the 2025 Betfred Super League season.

The centre has signed a three-year deal with the Black & Whites, keeping him at the MKM Stadium until at least the end of the 2027 campaign.

The 28 year old Ireland international, who enjoyed a brief loan spell with the club earlier this season, is returning to West Hull on a permanent basis.

Chamberlain, who was a Betfred Challenge Cup winner with the Leopards in 2023, has over 130 senior appearances under his belt since his senior debut in 2015, and adds further depth to FC’s options in the outside-backs.

Coming through the ranks at Widnes Vikings, Chamberlain enjoyed loan spells with Whitehaven RLFC, Workington Town, Bradford Bulls and Salford Red Devils, before earning a permanent deal with the Greater Manchester side in 2018. 

He joined Leigh in 2022, and helped the side achieve promotion to Super League in that same season, where he has been a mainstay across the last two and a half seasons for the club scoring 21 tries in 53 appearances.

A capable goal-kicker, Chamberlain is also able to feature at both back-row and half-back, offering additional depth for John Cartwright’s side across the park next year.

Chamberlain becomes FC’s fifth recruit ahead of the 2025 campaign, joining fellow Leopards teammate Zak Hardaker who’s move to the club next season was confirmed on Monday, as well as powerhouse forward John Asiata, dangerous playmaker Jordan Abdull, and talented young hooker Amir Bourouh.

Hull FC’s Director of Rugby, Richie Myler, said: “Having been with us briefly earlier this season, we were really impressed with Ed’s attitude and application – even though he was only with us for two games, he slotted in well and has been someone we’re keen to bring in on a permanent basis ever since.

“Centre is a position we’re keen to strengthen and add some further depth to in 2025, and he does that for us. He also brings some important versatility, which is always an added bonus in the modern game.

“Having played with him myself for Ireland, I know he’ll fit in well in our environment next season.”
