Webster extends Castleford deal

Castleford Tigers have confirmed a contract extension for in-form centre Jake Webster.

The 33-year old has signed for a further year and will now stay with the club for the 2018 season. The Tigers also hold an option to extend his deal for another 12 months after that.

Webster joined Castleford from Hull KR back in 2013 and has gone on to become a huge favourite with the fans. He had one of the best seasons of his career in 2016, scoring 14 tries in 24 games.

“I’m really excited to have signed a new deal here with the Tigers – I really could not have seen myself putting another team’s jersey on,” said Webster.

“I’m really happy with how things are going this year and how they have gone since I managed to get myself injury free.”

“The club has been great to me and the fans are second to none. They drive me to play the way that I do and I hope I can just be around them and this club until the end of my career.”

Tigers’ boss Daryl Powell added: “Jake has shown this season that he is still a very good player in all aspects of his performance.

“He is a much more durable athlete than he has been in the past and his skill sets and experience are a key part of our form so far this season.

“This new deal gives Jake a chance to continue to drive his standards and support the young players at our club.”
