Former Wigan winger Shaun Ainscough has signed a new deal with League 1 side Rochdale for 2020.

The 30-year-old joined the Hornets ahead of last season, scoring nine tries in 26 appearances.

Ainscough said: “I am happy to have re-signed with Rochdale and build again with Matt (Calland) as coach.

“Coming from a professional rugby background, he knows what is needed to build the team back up and hopefully compete and give the fans some great battles with other teams throughout the year.

“After a tough season this year, it is only right I go another year and give 100% every week for the fans, the team and my family.”

Rochdale coach Matt Calland added: “I am really pleased to have Shaun on board again in 2020.

“He was our best outside-back last season and he played consistently well in a beaten team each week and that says a lot about him.

“He is great to have around the club and he is a fan’s favourite and he certainly knows where the try-line is.”
