Ratchford extends Warrington stay

Warrington Wolves fullback Stefan Ratchford has signed a new contract to keep him at the club until 2022.

Ratchford signed for the Wolves in 2012 from Salford Red Devils, and has since won two Challenge Cups at the club.

The new contract will take him up to 10 years service with the Wolves.

Reacting to the news, he said:  “I am delighted to be staying. I love the club, the boys and everything we stand for.

“The staff and the board have all been great with me over my time so far.

“Being a Wiganer and signing from Salford, I didn’t know how the fans would take me having come from near rivals, but they have been brilliant with me from day one. Hopefully we can have more success over the next few years, and I look forward to being a part of it.”

Warrington Head Coach Steve Price added:  “It is awesome news for our club to reach an agreement with Stef Ratchford.

“He is one of the most professional players I have come across in the game. He is so diligent in his preparation on and off the field, and is a wonderful guy to coach.

“I still see him getting even better. It’s cracking news to have extended his stay until 2022. He’s been a really good sounding board for me and is a strong leader within our team which I expect him to continue to grow.”
