Dixon commits to Castleford

Castleford Tigers winger Kirk Dixon will remain at The Mend-A-Hose Jungle until the end of 2015 after signing a one-year contract extension
Dixon joined the club ahead of the 2007 National League One championship winning campaign and has gone on to score 80 tries and 336 goals in 163 games for them. Having scored 992 points in a Tigers shirt Dixon admitted there was nowhere else he’d rather be.
“I’ve been here for a while now and I can see that things are progressing and moving forwards so it was a pretty simple decision,”said Dixon.
“We’re starting to get some good combinations out on the field and it’s a pleasure to be in the side, so although it sounds like an old cliché it was a no-brainer for me.
“I sat down with Daryl (Powell, head coach) during the pre-season campaign and he said that he would like to keep me and I was more than happy to stay.”
Coach Powell is equally as delighted to have Dixon on board for another couple of seasons.
“Kirk is a pleasure to coach and works as hard, if not harder, than anyone on his individual game which makes him a role model for young players to aspire towards,” added Powell.
“His game has been excellent in my time at the club and I am looking forward to an outstanding season from him.”
