Wigan youngster Shorrocks signs new deal

Wigan Warriors’ Jake Shorrocks has signed a three-year contract with the club.

The young halfback made his debut for the Warriors in June and went on to make 12 appearances for the Grand Final winners.

Wigan Warriors head coach, Shaun Wane, said: “Jake was very unlucky not to play in the Grand Final at the end of last season but the way he handled that disappointment has shown the measure of him as a person. He is mature for his age and a very good player too.

“We’ll train for some of the pre-season without Tommy Leuluai and George Williams but that gives us even more time to work with Jake and he is a player that will only get better and better. We are delighted to have agreed this new contract with Jake.”

Shorrocks said: “I’m really happy to have secured this new contract with Wigan and can’t wait for the season to start now. I loved every minute of playing for the First Team last year and am hungry for more games over the next three years.

“I really enjoy being part of this team and just want to continue to learn and improve and believe that at Wigan, working alongside the likes of Tommy Leuluai and Sean O’Loughlin and under the coaching of Shaun Wane, that gives me the best opportunity to do that.”
