St Helens have announced that Mark Percival has signed a new five-year deal, keeping him at the club until at least the end of the 2024 season.

Percival, 25, joined the Saints as a 14-year-old from Halton Hornets and came through the ranks in the scholarship and academy.

The England international made his first team debut against Leeds in 2013, and has made a total of 158 appearances since then, scoring 88 tries and kicking 225 points.

“I am over the moon,” said Percival.

“I have loved being at this club since I joined at the age of 14. Leaving has never really come into my mind and to be offered a five year deal, I am buzzing.

“I have known Mike (Rush) and Eamonn (McManus) for a long time now and for them to put their faith in me to be at this club for so long is something I am humbled by and I want to repay them with my performances.”

Head coach Kristian Woolf added: “I’m delighted Mark has signed a new deal with us. He’s as tough as they come and although only in his mid-twenties is a player with a vast amount of experience.

“Having won two Grand Finals he clearly knows how to win and that is hugely beneficial to our group and the younger players. We will miss Percy over the coming weeks given his injury, but when he is back fit I have no doubt he will continue to be an important player for us over the coming years.”
