Warrington star signs new deal

Warrington Wolves have announced that Danny Walker has signed a new 12-month contract extension which will keep him at his hometown club until at least November 2022. 

Warrington-born Walker, who turns 22 today, came through the junior ranks in the town representing both Crosfields and Rylands Community Clubs. He made his Warrington debut after signing from Widnes Vikings back in February 2019, going on to make 38 appearances for the Wolves, scoring six tries.

Speaking on his contract extension, the hooker said: “I’m made up to have signed a new deal with the club.

“It’s been a really enjoyable last three years. There’s been plenty of ups and downs but now I’m looking forward to the next 12 months of hopefully plenty more ups.

“I just want to keep building game by game and see where the future takes me. I want to get as many minutes as possible and keep trying to impress every time I get out there while enjoying my rugby which is the main thing.

“I come down to the stadium with 4,000 fans at the minute and I probably know half of them! It means a lot to represent my hometown club and it was something I always wanted to do. Next year will be my fourth year of doing that so it’s exciting times ahead.”

Warrington Wolves head coach Steve Price added: “It’s exciting news for the club to re-sign Danny. He’s a local junior who I know loves representing his hometown club.

“Ever since joining his performances and attitude have been first class and it’s been great to see his game develop. He adds great value to the playing group and is a tough guy to go with it.

“He’s been in some really good form of late and there’s plenty more to come from him.”
