Wigan extend young trio’s contracts

Wigan Warriors today confirmed that they have extended the contracts of Darrell Goulding, Eamon O'Carroll and Michael McIlorum.The players will be with the club until at least the end of 2008.

Speaking about the news, Chairman Maurice Lindsay said,

"We are constantly trying to strengthen the home grown element of our playing squad and of course the game is moving towards a period when the requirement for home grown players will increase as a percentage of the whole squad."

Lindsay continued,

"All three players have come through our junior ranks and are already breaking into the first team squad. They carry all the qualities needed to become permanent fixtures in the side in future years."

The Warriors policy of increasing the home grown element of their squad follows the recent contract extensions of players such as Gareth Hock, Harrison Hansen and Joel Tomkins
