New Saints deal for Foster

St Helens starlet Jamie Foster put Saints fans’ minds at rest last night by confirming a new and improved two year contract at the club.

The exciting winger, who learnt his trade playing for Blackbrook Royals, still had a year to go on his contract after agreeing two years in October of 2010.

He said:  “I’m really happy to re-sign with my home town club for a further two seasons. I’ve benefited a lot from the first team experience that I’ve gained in my first two seasons in Super League, which has involved me in two Grand Finals already.

“There’s a lot of competition for places in the first team this season and the squad is raring to get playing in our new ground, Langtree Park.”

Foster, 21, broke through to the St Helens first team in 2010, and has played in both Super League Grand Final defeats in the last two seasons, against Wigan and Leeds.

Coach Royce Simmons added: “Jamie is one of the best goal kickers in the world. He already has a great amount of first team experience for a 21-year-old and this new deal gives him the opportunity to continue his progress and development as a wing three quarter.

“He is more than capable of doing this.”
