Makinson signs new deal at St Helens

St Helens have confirmed that Tommy Makinson has signed a new four-year deal with the club.

The 23-year-old should now stay with Saints until at least the end of the 2018 season.

The winger has scored 69 tries in 104 games for Saints, and has also kicked 79 goals.

“Tommy has proven himself as a natural, and sometimes unnatural, try scorer for the Saints,” said St Helens chairman Eamonn McManus.

“He’s one of our many academy trained players in what is a very young and exciting first team squad. It will only improve further this season and in the seasons ahead.

“It’s more than satisfying to lock him in for four years and I’m sure he’s going to share in more success with his teammates.”

Makinson himself was delighted to have committed his future to the club.

“I’ve already had a great four seasons with the first team at my boyhood club. It’s a thrill to know that I’ll now be part of it for the foreseeable future,” he said.

“We have a great and young squad who know each other well and who’ll be doing everything to keep the Club at the top. It’s a great time to be at St Helens.”
