Rochdale captain extends deal

Rochdale Hornets captain Shaun Ainscough has signed a new deal to take him to the end of 2021.

Ainscough joined the club in 2019 from Batley Bulldogs, and was made captain a year later.

The winger joins Callum Marriott, Sean Penkywicz and Head Coach Matt Calland in committing their future to the club.

Ainscough told the club website: “I’m really pleased to be signing a contract extension with the club and to be a part of what we have built as a team from players to backroom staff.

“It was looking to be a great team that Matt Calland and the coaching staff and board have built, and to be a part of a club that is moving in the right direction and push for promotion in the 2021 season is exciting.”

Head Coach Calland added: “He is a player who always gets us on the front foot early in the tackle count and is a real character to have around the place.”
