Ben Westwood will stay at Warrington for at least another season.

Westwood, 37, signed for the Wolves back in 2002 and has made over 400 appearances for the club.

Warrington announced the news by tweeting a video of their fans singing his name as he walked onto the pitch at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

On the extension Westwood said:

“I’m very much looking forward to another season at Warrington. I really enjoyed last year. It’s the pre-season training that’s going to be the first test but I still feel I can get through it.

“I will get my head down and keep training hard so I’m ready for any competition that comes my way.”

Wolves head coach, Steve Price, said:

“I was really pleased with how Ben went about his business this year.

“He nailed his pre-season and that was reflected in his performances throughout the year. We kept in regular dialogue and I’d deliver on my word if he kept playing good football and his body was holding up.

“I look forward to seeing Ben in 2019. His pre-season’s important again and we will then get into the swing of things after Christmas.

“He’s been a terrific role model. He’s a first-class guy to coach; I love everything about him and what he stands for. He is the ultimate warrior.”
