“I am delighted that Ben has agreed to stay at Castleford for a further user reviews semenax two years,” said Clark.
“He is a quality young man and a player of undoubted potential. I look forward to working with Ben over the next two years to see him fulfil that potential at his development Club.”
For Reynolds, he is pleased to stay with the club and plans to push for an eventual starting spot through hard work and commitment.
“I am absolutely delighted to sign a deal for the next two seasons with the Club,” said Reynolds.
“I have been working incredibly hard on my game for the last few years and I feel as though things are starting to come together now.
“My immediate aim is to push for a place in the team for the remaining games this year but I know that I must continue to work even harder to try and earn my place as a regular next season.”
