Cherry-Evans sticks with Manly

It went back and forth countless times, as to whether or not he would in fact remain with the club, but, finally, Daly Cherry-Evans has made his decision – and he will remain at Manly until the end of the 2015 NRL season.

Cherry-Evans, who was the 2011 Dally M Rookie of the Year, agreed to the new deal (an extension), and said that he cannot think of any other club he would want to be at.

“Manly gave me my start in the NRL and I love it here,” he said.

“I get the opportunity to play with so many committed, talented players and it’s great to know I’ll be here for years to come.”

For Manly coach Geoff Toovey, he believes that there is still more room for DCE to grow and mature as a player, heading towards the future – in what is an ominous sign for rival clubs.

“Daly was a big part of our success last year and we haven’t see the best of him yet.”

“He’s a superstar of the future and with the quality players he has around him, we can continue our winning formula.”

David Perry, who is the Chief Operating Officer at the Manly Sea Eagles, said that re-signing Cherry Evans was the primary priority for the club.

“There’s no doubt Daly is an outstanding player and a vital part of the Sea Eagles future. To secure him for the long-term is a huge boost for the club and our supporters.”
