Michaels signs new one-year deal at Hull

Hull FC player Steve Michaels has signed a new one-year contract to keep him at the club in 2016.

FC ccoach Lee Radford is delighted to have secured the player’s future, and expects him to blend well with the club’s new recruits.

The likes of Scott Taylor, Frank Pritchard and Carlos Tuimavave are already confirmed as Airlie Birds next season, and more are expected to arrive soon.

“He was a bit of an unknown quantity to some when we announced his signing last year, but he’s been a great addition to the squad and over the last six performance he’s really started to shine and show us his true credentials,” said Radford.

“After a difficult start to the season in finding his feet, I think he’s really come out of his shell and stepped-up his game.

“I’m sure with the added competition for places next season with the young lads coming through and the new players we’re bringing in will only drive him on further and bring the best out of him.

“I’m delighted for him to have signed a new deal and hopefully he can take his recent form into next season and perform to his highest standards on a weekly basis.

“Players like Steve will complement what we’re trying to build in the squad for next season. We’ve already added Carlos to the roster to add some competition in the outside backs and we’ll have another new face in there for next year too.

“We’re having to work hard with pressures and challenges presented by the salary cap and quota regulations etc, but the squad is starting to take shape and we’re really excited about it.”
