Hull FC half-back Marc Sneyd has ended speculation over his future and agreed a new three-year contract extension with the Black and Whites.
The back-to-back Lance Todd Trophy winner, who kicked the winning point for Hull in their win at Catalans over the weekend, was out of contract at the end of the current campaign, but will now be with Lee Radford’s side until the end of the 2022 season.
He said: “It’s a massive weight off my shoulders and now I can fully concentrate on playing my rugby for Hull rather than worrying about my future.
“The rugby is going really well at the moment and my family is really settled here in Hull, so there was never any reason for us to move away.
“I am really looking forward to just cracking on in the next few years and hopefully we get the chance to win a few more trophies.”
Sneyd added: “I’m really happy at the club, it is a good place to be, it is a good setup and I think we are going places. The future looks very promising for us.”
Sneyd has made 115 appearances since joining the club in 2015, becoming a household name in Super League. During that time he has also kicked 408 goals, earning him the Super League Top Gun title two years running.
Head coach Lee Radford signed the 28-year-old in 2015 and is delighted to retain the services of his play maker. He said: “When I took over as head coach of the club there were a lot of games that we lost by four or six points. Marc Sneyd’s goal kicking ability means that we don’t find ourselves in that situation as often.
“I still think that Marc’s best years are ahead of him despite the fact that he has already brought two Challenge Cup trophies home for us.
“He is the sort of player who steps up to the plate when the pressure is on. We want him to be rolling out in some more cup finals over the next three years.
“I’m really pleased to see Marc staying with the club and I’m sure the fans will be too.”
