Kyle Amor extends Saints deal

Kyle Amor has become the latest St Helens player to commit his immediate future to the club after signing a new 12-month contract extension.

The 32-year-old is one of the club’s most experienced players and joins fellow veteran forward Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook in signing a new deal.

He joined the club from Wakefield in 2013 and has gone on to make over 180 appearances, winning two Super League titles along the way.

“I am over the moon to sign on again for another year,” said Amor. “Ever since I joined the club I have loved it; the players, the staff and the people in the town. I am delighted to stay for another 12 months.

“My role has changed over the last couple of years and as long as I am contributing enough to be selected every week then I will be happy. It’s a special time at the moment with a lot of young lads putting pen to paper and the club is clearly building for the future.

“Part of my role next year is to help those young lads come through and that is what it is like at this club. We all help each other out and make sure that whatever happens is the best result for the club.”

Saints head coach Kristian Woolf added: “I have been really happy with what Kyle has offered us off the bench this year. He has some really good experience and he and Louie (McCarthy-Scarsbrook) love playing together and I love the enthusiasm they bring to the squad.

“Kyle’s experience, in what is essentially going to be a younger group next year, is going to be essential and he will play a part in helping those other young middle forwards develop. He is a popular member of the group and I enjoy coaching him.”
