Hull hooker signs extension

Hull FC captain Danny Houghton has signed a two-year contract extension with his hometown club.

The long serving skipper will become one of the club’s leading appearance makers of all-time as prepares to see out his career at the KCOM Stadium until at least the end of the 2022 campaign.

After recently clocking up his 350th Hull FC appearance, Houghton is thrilled to continue his career with the club he has supported since a young age.

He said: “I’m over the moon. I’m very happy to have got the deal done and continue playing for the club I love.

“The club has always looked after me and I’m always proud to pull that jersey on. Hopefully I can continue to do that in some big games in the next couple of years, especially tomorrow.

“To get to the Grand Final would be the icing on the cake. But we know what’s in front of us tomorrow – Wigan in finals footy are up there as one of the best sides at it. But we know we are going to give it our absolute best for 80 minutes.

Head Coach Andy Last added:“We’re really pleased to announce the extension for Danny. He’s a fantastic player, a great club man and a real inspirational leader for the group.

“His form doesn’t drop off, which is a measure of his consistency.

“His role has changed a little bit during my time in charge. I moved him back to the bench because of his ability to change the course of a game when he comes off the bench.

“His run threat and his footballing ability makes him a really good all-round player and we’re far better for having him in the team.”
