Jonny Lomax: New St Helens contract for utility back
St Helens full-back Jonny Lomax has signed a new four-year contract which will keep him at Langtree Park until the end of the 2017 season.
The St Helens-born 23-year-old broke into the first-team squad in 2011 and has since become a key member of the team, proving his versatility by playing in a number of positions across the backs.
He has made 97 appearances for Saints so far in which he has scored 47 tries and kicked 95 goals as well as two drop goals to take his overall tally to 380 points.
Skippers relishing Super League season
Lomax told his club's official website: "It's a real thrill to commit my long-term future to my home town club, particularly at a time when the future of the Saints is looking so good and when Super League is clearly going from strength to strength.
"We have an improving and exciting Saints squad in an improving and strengthening Super League. I can now only look forward with ambition and excitement."
Saints chairman Eamonn McManus said: "This is a major boost for St.Helens and, on the back of other very recent extensions for our top young British players, a ringing endorsement of all the fantastic commercial and financial strides that Super League and rugby league have recently achieved and will now continue to achieve.
"There can be no better tangible evidence of these recent major achievements than the long-term retention of the very best British talent in which we as a club have invested so much and for so long."
