Thackeray pledges future to Dewsbury

Anthony Thackeray has pledged his future to Dewsbury, signing a new two-year contract.

Thackeray, 28, joined the Rams from Halifax in the close season, and scored five tries in Sunday’s win against Barrow.

Coach Glenn Morrison said: “Anthony is one of the most professional and dedicated players I have coached.

“He always wants to improve his game and is in doing extras with video analysis and personal improvement on the field nearly every day.

“I’m delighted we can continue to build our competitive side around Anthony. He is a pleasure to coach and remains a real threat to opposition teams.”

Thackeray, who played in Super League for Hull and Castleford, has also played for Featherstone, Widnes and York at Championship level.

He said: “It was a simple decision, really.

“I’m really enjoying myself with the team and coaching staff at Dewsbury, I believe my game is improving and I want to continue that improvement and push myself to be the best player I can.

“I think the next few years are where I will be at my peak as a player and I’m glad I will be spending them at the Rams.

“I want to play in a competitive team and win trophies and I believe I’m at a club where I can do that.”

Thackeray is the Rams’ top try scorer this season, with 11 tries in 12 games.
