Jonny Lomax commits long-term future to St Helens

Jonny Lomax has signed a two-year contract extension with St Helens, keeping him at the club until at least the end of 2024.

The 30-year-old has scored 111 tries in 242 appearances for Saints since making his debut for the club back in 2009. He has earned 13 caps in total for England and Great Britain.

Lomax has won two Super League titles with Saints and has been named in the Super League Dream Team on two occasions.

He said: “I am delighted. I have been a the club for a long time now and to sign that two-year extension to my existing deal is great.

“I have had my ups and downs whilst I have been here, but now it is about me giving back as much as I can. I want to show the loyalty the club has shown me as well as the support the fans have given me over the years.

“It’s a dream come true to be at the club for so long. I signed for the Scholarship back when I was 11 years old and this contract will take me up to nearly 25 years affiliation with the club. That is something I would have never have dreamed of especially after the back to back ACL injuries which was my third overall so to now get to where I am today and potentially finish my career here is fantastic.”

St Helens coach Kristian Woolf said: “Jonny is a cornerstone of what St Helens is as a club.

“He is a real key player for us and along with the likes of James Roby, he is one of the blokes who sets the example in the way he trains and prepares himself for every game. He sets the culture and example for others to follow and is a big part of the team and it is really exciting for everyone that he is going to be with us for a number of years to come.”
