Payne re-signs for 2013

Recommended Posts


Gateshead Thunder are delighted to announce that Jason Payne has re-signed for the 2013 season.

Payne, who first signed for Thunder on loan from Castleford Tigers in 2007 and then signed permanently with the club in 2008, has since gone on to become captain in 2011 and 2012.

Head Coach Kevin Neighbour said of the signing:

"This is a real statement of intent that we have been able to keep Jason at Gateshead Thunder."

"There have been several clubs looking to sign Jason for 2013 but the fact that we have been able to retain his services for another year is a true mark of both him as a person and where he sees we can go next year."

"He's been an outstanding player for us over the past 3 season in what has been the toughest time in the clubs' history. His experience and leadership will be invaluable next season."

Payne said:

"I'm really happy to have re-signed with Thunder for next season."

"I've had a few conversations with both Kevin (Neighbour) and Keith (Christie) about next season and the players we have both signed and are close to signing."

"I obviously know what the club are doing behind the scenes to strengthen and develop and I still believe in what we as an organisation are doing."

"I'm looking forward to getting back into training and meeting up with both new and old players alike."
