Doncaster RLFC are delighted to announce that player coach Paul Cooke has agreed a new one year contract extension with the club.
Cooke took over as head coach of Doncaster in the close season and has guided the club to third place in the league, after a fantastic start to Kingstone Press Championship.
The deal will see Cooke remain with the Dons until at least the end of the 2015 campaign.
Cooke said: “I am delighted to have sorted the contract out nice and early, it gives me and my family a lot of stability.
“It wasn’t a difficult decision to make at all, it was all done this week and I am really pleased to be staying.
“I have really enjoyed my time at Doncaster and I am looking forward to building on what we have started this year.
“I would like to thank Carl Hall and Gavin Baldwin, they have been a real pleasure to work with and have made my job really easy.
“The players also deserve great credit, we wouldn’t be successful without the team, I look forward to continuing my work with them all both for the remainder of this season and next year.
Chief executive Carl Hall added: “We have had a lot of interest from other teams about Paul Cooke, but he wants to stay here.
“He is doing a fantastic job and we are very grateful that he has agreed to stay here because he is vital for this club.
“We have started with the top man and now we will start working our way through the team.”
