Cook commits to Castleford

Matt Cook has signed a one-year contract extension with Castleford Tigers.

The new deal will keep the 29 year-old at the club until the end of the 2017 season.

Cook, who previously had a loan spell with Cas in 2008, joined the Tigers from London Broncos at the beginning of the 2015.

The former England international, who made 17 appearances for Castleford last season, told the club’s website: “I’m over the moon to be staying at Castleford for the next two years. Since joined the club last season I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being part of this team. I feel very settled at the club and I think that comes down to the club culture and how tight knit the boys are.”

“Last season we narrowly missed out on making the top four in order to push for silverware. I’m really looking forward to the next two seasons at Cas and I truly believe we can go on and win trophies.  I’d like to thank Powelly, the coaching staff, Steve Gill and the club for giving me the opportunity to extend my stay with the Tigers.”

Head coach Daryl Powell added:  “Cooky has been a quality signing for us with his energy and athleticism being two great strengths. I’m confident he has a whole heap of further development in his game and I am really pleased to extend his deal and secure his services for the next two years.”
