Hunslet Hawks coach Barry Eaton has signed a two-year extension to his contract with the Championship One outfit.
The 40-year-old former Keighley boss has guided his side to four wins from five games in 2014. Club chairman Neil Hampshire said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Barry has agreed to extend his contract with the Hawks.
“He has bought into the philosophies of a supporter-owned club and has become integral to what we want to achieve here being a key factor in helping to grow the business side as well as putting the Club at the heart of the community.
“Barry is without doubt one of the outstanding young coaches in today’s game and has instilled a thoroughly professional approach right across the coaching, playing and back room staff. This new deal is just reward for the outstanding job he has done so far on a very limited budget. It gives both Barry and the Club a stable platform from which to move forward.”
