New Giants deal for McGillvary

Winger Jermaine McGillvary has signed a new contract with Huddersfield to keep him at the club until the end of 2013.

McGillvary, 22, scored five tries in seven appearances after breaking in to the Giants first team last season.

Head Coach Nathan Brown said: “Jermaine is progressing well for the Giants. He has taken some big steps forward from where he was two and a half years ago to where he is now. He played a handful of games last year where he impressed and the way he has trained and the improvements he’s shown so far in training would suggest he’s in for a good year this year.”

The Huddersfield-born winger cut his professional teeth during a loan spell at Batley in 2009 which saw him named in the Championship team of the year.

He said: “As soon as the offer came I didn’t hesitate to sign it. I want to stay here for as long as I can really. Browny (Nathan Brown) is pleased with the way I’ve been training and he’s been giving me loads of encouragement. Hopefully I’m giving him a headache for the new season because I’m pushing myself to the limit so there’s no reason in my mind why I can’t start this season.”
