Castleford promote Robbie Storey to first team

Castleford academy star Robbie Storey has earned himself a two-year deal with the Tigers’ first team.

The 18-year-old centre joined the club last season from City of Hull Academy and he has impressed during his time with the Tigers.

Storey has represented England at Youth level and is a former junior of West Hull.

And he is delighted to sign his first ever professional contract.

Storey said: “I am absolutely over the moon to be stepping up the first team.

“Coming over here from Hull was obviously a new environment for me but I settled in here straight away and I’m so pleased to be going full-time and hopefully getting some Super League games this year or next year.

“Everyone here has made me feel so welcome from day one, and I’m really looking forward to working more with players like Jake Webster and Michael Shenton who are so experienced in my position, and have already been so helpful in my development.

“I can’t thank the coaches here at Castleford enough for the guidance they’ve given me so far in my career.”

Storey can still play for Castleford’s Under-19s side in 2018.
