World Transfer Record
Castleford paid a then World Transfer Record of £170,000 for Graham Steadman when he moved from Featherstone Rovers in 1989 (based on increases in average earnings, this would be approximately £396,000 in 2009).
Graham was made full-time coach of Castleford Tigers towards the end of 2001 after Stuart Raper left for Wigan. Steadman took the club to the top 6 playoffs in 2002 and then the club finished 8th in 2003. 2004 saw his worst year as coach when the club failed to win any games under Steadman. A lot of people blamed the board for not backing him with money to spend. Poor recruits such as Sean Rudder, Sean Ryan, Paul Newlove and Ryan Sheridan ended Steadman's reign as Castleford boss and he was sacked after losing to Wakefield Trinity Wildcats in a home league game.
