Castleford youngster signs pro terms

Castleford Tigers youngster Sam Hall has signed his first professional contract at the club for the next two seasons.

Hall made his senior debut for the Tigers earlier this month during the victory against Wigan Warriors.

He has been at the club since he was 14, and has worked his way up from the scholarships, to the U19s and now to the First Team.

Hall told the club website: “It’s such a great opportunity, obviously I played that Wigan game and the news came about quick and it’s something I’ve wanted to do since I was a kid, I’m so happy it’s happened really.

“Both my brothers have played rugby league, my grandad played and it’s just something that I’ve wanted to do since the age of three, when you know you want to do it you have to do it. When the opportunity came up I couldn’t turn it down.”

Head Coach Daryl Powell added: “It’s great news for ourselves, Darren Higgins and his Youth Development staff such as Tony Smith & Danny Evans who have done brilliant work to get this young man through our system.

“Sam’s a quality young person and player and making his debut in the circumstances he did, I think he handled it so well.

“He has a big future ahead of him. I’m looking forward to seeing how he further develops in our environment.”
