Young Saints halfback Lewis Dodd has signed a new four year contract to remain at the club.
Dodd scored 21 tries in 25 matches for the U19s last year, as they reached the Academy Grand Final.
He started this year in good form too. He has scored five tries in his first two reserve games this year, including a hat trick against London Broncos.
Reacting to the new deal, he told the club website: “As a young kid, my dream was and still is to play Super League and to sign for a club like St Helens is an ‘over the moon’ type feeling, so I am really pleased.
“If I get my chance in the first team, you have to grab it with both hands and that is what I will be looking to do.”
Head Coach Kristian Woolf added: “Doddy is a fantastic talent. He had a great season in the Academy last year and has already impressed in the Reserves in 2020.
“He is only 18 so has lots to learn but if he works hard there is no doubting his talent and we are confident he can have a hugely successful Saints career.”
