Whitehaven RL are delighted to announce that hooker James Tilley has committed himself to the club until the end of the 2019 season after signing a two year contract. James joined us from Rochdale Hornets after being at St Helens from age 11 and has made 28 appearances for the club this season scoring two tries in his debut season in the club's run to the League 1 final. Tilley speaking about his new deal said "2017 has been a difficult year but a really enjoyable one. We have become one off the closest teams that I have played in and I’m happy to be able to commit to putting the club back where it belongs in the championship next year and then staying there the year after.Head coach Carl Forster said "I'm made up to have James signed up for 2 more years, I believe he's been one of the unsung heroes of the year. He always does the small things and consistently well all year. He's a great lad and a great player. This is the first of our signings to be announced in the coming weeks as we aim to have a squad in 2018 that can once again push for promotion.
