Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook signs new one-year contract with St Helens

Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook has signed a one-year contract extension with St Helens.

The new deal for the 32-year-old means he will continue his association with the club for at least a ninth season, having signed for the Saints from London all the way back in 2011.

He made his debut at the Magic Weekend against Wigan that year, and has since gone on to make 220 appearances in total for the club.

“I’m really happy to extend my contract at the club,” he said said. “I’ve been here a long time and enjoy playing in front of our great fans and with my teammates.

“We last tasted success in 2014 and we want to put that right and bring silverware back to the club. We’re all working hard to do that and I’m really looking forward to the rest of this season and the next.”

Head coach Justin Holbrook added: “Louie is a very hard-working member of our team who gives us real go-forward. He plays and trains with high energy, a lot of enthusiasm and is very competitive, which are all good traits that I really admire about him.

“He sets a great example for the rest of the squad, as well as being a popular member of the side.”
