Whiting signs new deal at Hull

Hull FC’s Richard Whiting is to stay with the club until at least the end of 2016 after signing a new-two year contract extension.
Speaking to www.hullfc.com, Whiting said, ³This is my club, it¹s my home and I am very proud to represent Hull FC.
“I have had a great ten years with the club, but I am just as excited about the future now as I was when I joined in 2004.
“There have been some significant changes over the last few weeks which I know will be good for the club and I am looking forward to working with Lee (Radford) and the coaching staff.
“The players are excited about getting started under the new regime and I think we have the makings of a really good squad going into next season.
He added, “It’s a dream come true to earn a testimonial with the club, as it was to finally walk out at Wembley.
“Our aim now is to get back there and win and finally show we can become a consistent force in Super League. I can¹t wait to play my part in that again next season.”
Having made 224 appearances racking up 71 tries, 19 goals and two field goals, the 28-year-old has played in every position for the club since making his debut in 2004.
After joining from Featherstone Rovers, he has had a notable career with the Airlie Birds earning Supporters¹ Player of the Year for the last three seasons, Super League Young Player of the Year in 2005 and Super League Community Player of the Year in 2009.
He has also represented England A, as well as featuring for Hull in the 2006 Super League Grand Final and the career highlight of a Challenge Cup win at the Millennium Stadium in 2005.
