Veteran Richard Horne has signed a one-year extension to his contract with Hull FC.

The new deal will take the long-serving half-back into a 16th season with his home-town club.

Horne, 30, who celebrated a testimonial in 2010, has made 348 appearances, scoring 124 tries, since making his debut against Leeds as a 16-year-old in 1999.

"I'm pleased the club have offered me another year," he said. "I still know I've got plenty of 'footy' in me and I can't see myself playing anywhere other than Hull.

"It's my club and my town and I'll keep giving it all I can until the day I know it's time to hang up the boots."

Hull coach Peter Gentle said: "There is no doubting that Richard is one of the club's greats and when he finally does hang up his boots he will have a place reserved in Hull FC folklore.

"He is a one-club man, black and white through and through and for that reason it was an extremely easy decision to offer him another contract extension.

"His experience and character plays a big part for us, as does his utility value, and that makes him an integral part of the squad."
