Retaining their best young British players has been a priority for St Helens and they have done it yet again, with the club re-signing talented player Jonny Lomax to a new four-year deal.
Lomax, who is still only 23 but has 100 Super League games to his name already, is excited to extend his deal at his home club and is pleased with the direction the side is heading in.
“It’s a real thrill to commit my long-term future to my home town club, particularly at a time when the future of the Saints is looking so good and when Super League is clearly going from strength to strength,” said Lomax.
“We have an improving and exciting Saints squad in an improving and strengthening Super League. I can now only look forward with ambition and excitement.”
The club is also thrilled to have retained his services and they will continue to keep and promote the best young talent in England at their club.
“This is a major boost for St.Helens and, on the back of other very recent extensions for our top young British players, a ringing endorsement of all the fantastic commercial and financial strides that Super League and rugby league have recently achieved and will now continue to achieve,” said Saints Chairman Eamonn McManus.
“There can be no better tangible evidence of these recent major achievements than the long-term retention of the very best British talent in which we as a club have invested so much and for so long.”
