Danny Washbrook has signed a one-year contract extension with Hull FC.

The 32-year-old utility has spent 10 years serving his hometown club, along with four years with Wakefield Trinity.

Washbrook will celebrate 2019 with a testimonial year after making over 200 appearances for the Black and Whites.

On his contract extension, he said: “I’m really pleased to get the deal done. I’ve been having a few discussions with people at the club over the last few months, so to get it done and over the line is really pleasing.

“I’ve obviously been around for a long time now, so my responsibility is to help the young kids out as much as I can and give as much advice as possible.

“Personally, my body feels good and I’ve been able to play a fair few games in Super League this year and hopefully I’ll be able to do the same next year.”

Hull FC coach Lee Radford is delighted that Washbrook has decided to stay for next year.

He said: “He’s a great professional and he’s certainly shown his value through his time here at Hull FC.

“His adaptability in a number of positions is very important to us and it’s good that we’re able to have him on board until 2019.”
