Dawson signs new St Helens deal

Matt Dawson has signed a two-year contract extension at St Helens.

The winger, who can also play at centre when needed, should now remain at the club until the end of the 2017 season.

“I had no hesitation to re-sign with the Saints,” Dawson told his club’s official website.

“I said when I signed two years ago that I was overwhelmed to be joining such a club and to accept another deal is a no brainer.

“I know Nathan Brown brought me to the Saints but it is pleasing that Keiron Cunningham has seen something in me. I hope I can continue to impress him and do what I can for the club.

“Sometimes I have to pinch myself that I am playing for St Helens; when you consider its history. It is a massive thing for me personally.

“To be part of the squad last season was also very special and what we achieved. I played 19 games but got injured towards the back end of the year and that perhaps cost me a place in the final.

“This year I have played a few games and I am now back in the team following injury. Keiron has put faith in me following Tommy Makinson’s injury and hopefully I can fill his shoes.

“I will do my best to do that and kick on for the rest of the season.

“Langtree Park was bouncing last Friday against Wigan and I want to be part of those big games.”
