Webster signs new Hull deal

Hull FC have confirmed that former half-back James Webster will remain at the club as an assistant coach after he put pen to paper on a new one-year coaching contract.

The former Hull, Hull KR and Parramatta Eels star returned to the Black and Whites mid way through the season on a short-term deal to help strengthen the coaching department.

Having been prised away from his playing career at Widnes, he has impressed in his role alongside head coach Richard Agar and fellow assistant coach Andy Last and has been rewarded with an extended stay at the club.

Speaking to www.hullfc.com, Webster said, “I am very happy, I have enjoyed my time and worked hard, but it has been really enjoyable going to work every day and I am really happy to be asked to stay on and helped to contribute and build to something for next year.

“It is good to be recognised for my work so far since I have come here, I have enjoyed it. It has been a steep learning curve for me and plenty I have had to learn quickly, but it is a great environment to be in and that is a credit to a lot of people behind the scenes and that is one of the reasons why we have had a successful season so far.”

Meanwhile, head coach Richard Agar also added, “”He has done a good job since he has been with us and is very hard working, conscientious and smart operator.

“He has contributed greatly to our group since he has been here and is a very good young coach in the making.”
