LEWIS Young has extended his Keighley Cougars contract until the end of the 2024 season.

The full-back, who joined from Championship outfit Newcastle Thunder in October 2021, has enjoyed a blistering first 17 months to life in the red and green.

Young has spoken of his happiness at the club, how he settled quickly in 2022 and he outlined his goals for 2023.

He said: “When I was offered the upgraded terms to my contract, I had no hesitation in re-signing and confirming my commitment to Keighley Cougars.

“It’s been amazing to play in the Betfred Championship again and with the group of boys we have now, I feel we are building something special.”
