Lynch the latest to commit to Castleford

Castleford Tigers have confirmed that Andy Lynch has agreed a one-year contract extension that will see him stay with the club until the end of the 2017 season.

In a deal that will see Lynch end his career with the Tigers, there is a further option for Lynch to add another year with the club if he chooses to continue.

The 36-year old re-joined Castleford at the start of the 2014 season after two years with Hull FC and has since played some of the best Rugby League of his career.

Lynch became the oldest active player in Super League at the beginning of this year’s campaign with the retirements of the likes of Jamie Peacock and Adrian Morley.

“This club is moving forward,” said Lynch.

“Powelly has built a fantastic working environment here and it’s a great feeling to know I will continue to be part of it beyond this season. Cas is a great place to be.”

“At this time the body feels good, age is just a number, and as long as still feel I can give it my all then I’ll continue to play. Rugby League has been my life, I enjoy every day working here at Cas and I don’t want it to stop.”

Daryl Powell added: “Andy Lynch has been unbelievable as a professional and as a player in his time since he has returned to Castleford Tigers. I’m delighted he has agreed to extend his stay with us further and look forward to working with him as he helps to drive the standards even higher at the club.”
