Henderson sticks with Wildcats

Scotland international Kevin Henderson has agreed a two-year deal to stay at Wakefield until the end of the 2011 season.

The 28-year old has been a member of the Wildcats squad since midway through 2005 when he joined from Leigh Centurions after previously playing for Newcastle Knights and South Sydney Rabbitohs.

Henderson’s 20 appearances in engage Super League XIV means he has now played 74 times for Wakefield and in 2008 he played in all three of Scotland’s games at the World Cup.

He was awarded for his consistent performances throughout the year with the Wakefield Express Best and Fairest Player of the Year Award at the club’s annual awards dinner and is looking forward to more success in 2010 and beyond.

“The plan is to improve year on year and we were top six this year so we want to make the top four next year,” said Henderson.

“We’ve got a good bunch of boys and I enjoy the coaching so it makes you want to stay and I’m glad I’ll be here for another couple of years.”

Wakefield Head Coach and Director of Football John Kear believes Henderson’s performances have warranted a new deal.

“Kevin is the sort of player every team needs.  He puts his hand up to the dirty work time and time again and he does it very well.”

“He is one of the players that have been here through our improvement over the past few years and I think he can contribute to that continuing next season and beyond,” added Kear.

Henderson will be joined at the Wildcats by a host of new signings including Glenn Morrison, Terry Newton, Daryl Millard, Shane Tronc and Ben Jeffries.
