Hull FC

With just one win so far this season, Hull FC needed drastic action. And whilst their troubles this season have been well documented, they have begun the process in earnest of building for the 2025 season. However, with a head coach in place for next year, their rebuild is well underway.

The club have already confirmed the signing of John Asiata and Jordan Abdull for 2025, with Jed Cartwright joining the club with immediate effect. They join the likes of Ben Reynolds, Tom Briscoe and Yusuf Aydin who have joined the Black and Whites partway through this season.

Hull FC have also been busy on retention in recent weeks. Logan Moy, Davey Litten and Lewis Martin have all signed new deals with the club to extend their stay beyond the 2024 season.

Now, another one of their talented young players has agreed a deal to remain at the club beyond 2024.

In a statement published on the club’s website, Hull FC confirmed that talented youngster, Charles would remain with the club for another two years. The club statement reads:

“Hull FC are pleased to confirm that young half-back Jack Charles has signed a two-year contract extension with the club.

“The deal sees the 18-year old, who this morning was named in Paul Anderson’s England Academy squad, remain at the MKM Stadium until at least the end of the 2026 Betfred Super League season.”

Upon signing the deal, Charles expressed his delight at having the opportunity to remain with the club. He stated that it had been his dream to represent the club since childhood. Charles said:

“It’s a dream come true to represent my boyhood club, so to have signed a new contract here is an incredibly special moment for me.

“I still have plenty of learning ahead, but I want to be a part of getting this club back to where it belongs and put some smiles back on the faces of our supporters over the next two years, and hopefully longer.

“Securing my future here means I can now concentrate on continuing to develop as a young player – having the likes of Jake Trueman as a mentor, and Jordan Abdull from next season too, is a mouth-watering prospect and I know how much I can learn from both of them.”

Hull FC’s Director of Rugby, Richie Myler, believes that Charles is one of the brightest talents in the country, and is delighted to confirm he will remain with Hull FC for the foreseeable future. Charles is only in the second year of his academy programme with Hull, but has been a first-team regular this season.

Myler said: “Jack is one of the brightest young half-backs in the game, and we’re delighted to have time with us for the next two seasons.

“Stepping up to the senior environment isn’t easy for anyone, never mind for an 18-year old who’s still only in his second year of the academy – but Jack has taken everything in his stride.

“He’s a bright young man with a good Rugby League brain, who’s keen to keep learning from those around him. It goes without saying that he is far from the finished article, but the early signs that he has shown during his time with us are promising, and that excites us as a club.”
