Keighley Cougars are today delighted to announce that Charlie Graham has signed a new contract with the club.
Joining the club prior to Christmas on a trial basis following his release from Super League outfit Hull FC, Charlie immediately impressed and was awarded a contract for the current season at the end of January.
He was rewarded with starts in March’s Joe Phillips Memorial Trophy and the Challenge Cup against the Bradford Bulls and London Broncos respectively.
And Graham did not disappoint when on the field in a game environment, winning the supporter’s Man of the Match in both fixtures as well as scoring a brace against the Bulls which included a sensational 60-yard interception effort in the first half.
The new deal agreed will see Graham, who joined the club in January of this year, extend his stay at Cougar Park by a further 12 months to the end of the 2022 season.
Reacting to the news, Head Coach Rhys Lovegrove said: “Charlie has been a player that since coming into our environment has added quality to not just the side, but the club, both on and off the field.
“He is young, strong, and athletic, but more importantly for me he has a hunger to prove himself and it is safe to say that he has done just that in his two games for the club to date.
“His partnership on the left edge with Robert Matamosi is blossoming and has added a different attacking threat to that of the squads I have assembled to date at the club.”
