MATTY Dawson has signed a twoyear contract extens

first_imgMATTY Dawson has signed a two-year contract extension at the Saints.The former Huddersfield Giant and Castleford Tiger will remain with the Champions until the end of 2017.Matty is predominately a winger but has also played in the centres since he signed for the club in 2014.“I had no hesitation to re-sign with the Saints,” Matty said. “I said when I signed two years ago that I was overwhelmed to be joining such a club and to accept another deal is a no brainer.“I know Nathan Brown brought me to the Saints but it is pleasing that Keiron Cunningham has seen something in me. I hope I can continue to impress him and do what I can for the club.“Sometimes I have to pinch myself that I am playing for St Helens; when you consider its history. It is a massive thing for me personally.“To be part of the squad last season was also very special and what we achieved. I played 19 games but got injured towards the back end of the year and that perhaps cost me a place in the Final.“This year I have played a few games and I am now back in the team following injury. Keiron has put faith in me following Tommy Makinson’s injury and hopefully I can fill his shoes.“I will do my best to do that and kick on for the rest of the season.“Langtree Park was bouncing last Friday against Wigan and I want to be part of those big games.”Previously, Matty played for Castleford until he was snapped up by Brown for the Giants ahead of the 2010 season.19 games followed in 2014 with six tries marking a solid season from the flyer.And in 2015 he played six times before an ankle injury saw him miss eight weeks until his return last week.last_img
