St.Helens have announced winger Tommy Makinson has extended his current contract by a further two years until at least the end of the 2024 season.

Makinson has been a one Club man since emerging through the Saints Academy and making his debut in 2011. The winger has gone on to win three Grand Final winners rings as well as being named the Golden Boot winner back in 2018 and top try scorer and metre maker in 2019.

He backed up his 2019 Grand Final winning drop-goal in 2020 as he played another match-winning role as his drop-goal attempt led to Jack Welsby’s last minute winner.

Makinson has made over 250 appearances for the Saints, scoring an incredible 141 tries and is into his Testimonial season at the Club.

On signing his new deal, Makinson said: “When the club presented that contract in front of me, I was really excited to sign it and become a one club man. I didn’t see myself playing for anyone else as Saints is where I wanted to be and I am really excited for the season ahead. 

“I have been here over 10 years now and hopefully for a long time yet. Pulling on that shirt, with the St Helens fans behind me, is the main reason I love playing for this club.

“I now want to repay that faith shown in me and help bring trophies back to this great Club. I have been lucky enough to win a few, but hopefully over the next few years we can win even more.”

Head Coach Kristian Woolf added: “This is great news for the Club. Tommy is a great character and of course a top player. He brings a great energy to the group and we can all see what a try scorer he is with the spectacular finishes everyone notices. 

“But what we love is his hard work, the number of carries he is willing to take and the energy he brings around both training and into games.

“He is a real good bloke to have involved and we are all delighted he has committed himself to us for the foreseeable future.”
