Castleford Tigers’ Academy star Ben Reynolds has signed a new two-year contract with the club.
The deal for the 19-year-old, who can play at either full-back or half-back, will keep him at the Tigers until the end of the 2015 season.
Although yet to make his senior debut, Reynolds has enjoyed a successful spell with the under 19s, having progressed through the club’s scholarship programme, and has been training with Daryl Powell’s first team squad throughout 2013.
Head coach Powell said: “I am delighted that Ben has agreed to stay at Castleford for a further two years.
“He is a quality young man and a player of undoubted potential. I look forward to working with Ben over the next two years to see him fulfil that potential at his development club.”
Reynolds said: “I am absolutely delighted to sign a deal for the next two seasons with the club.
“I have been working incredibly hard on my game for the last few years and I feel as though things are starting to come together now.
“My immediate aim is to push for a place in the team for the remaining games this year, but I know that I must continue to work even harder to try to earn my place as a regular next season.”
