St.Helens have announced halfback Jonny Lomax has signed a two-year extension to his current contract, keeping him at the Club until the end of the 2024 season.
Lomax has been a one Club man since emerging through the Saints Academy before making his debut in 2009. The half back has gone on to play in four Grand Finals, winning two of them as well as being named in two Super League Dream teams. He was the competition’s top assist maker last season as he led Saints to back to back Grand Final successes.
Reacting to the news, Lomax said: “I have been a the Club for a long time now and to sign that two year extension to my existing deal is great.
“I have had my ups and downs whilst I have been here, but now it is about me giving back as much as I can . I want to show the loyalty the Club has shown me as well as the support the fans have given me over the years.
“It’s a dream come true to be at the Club for so long. I signed for the Scholarship back when I was 11 years old and this contract will take me up to nearly 25 years affiliation with the Club.
“That is something I would have never have dreamed of especially after the back to back ACL injuries which was my third overall so to now get to where I am today and potentially finish my career here is fantastic.”
Head Coach Kristian Woolf added: “Jonny is a cornerstone of what St Helens is as a Club.
“He is a real key player for us and along with the likes of James Roby, he is one of the blokes who sets the example in the way he trains and prepares himself for every game.
He sets the culture and example for others to follow and is a big part of the team and it is really exciting for everyone that he is going to be with us for a number of years to come.”
