Saints duo commit futures

St Helens have tied Adam Swift and Alex Walmsley to new deals ahead of the new Super League season.

Teenage wing Swift and prop Walmsley are now under contract until 2017.

Both made a mark last year, Swift scoring 13 tries in 11 games and former Batley forward Walmsley making 26 appearances.

Saints head coach Nathan Brown told the club's official website: "Adam is a good young kid who took his chance last season. He is quick and eager to learn and I'm sure if he continues to develop will have a very good future in the game.


"Alex surprised everyone with how well he coped with the rigours of Super League but he thoroughly deserved the accolades that came his way. He adds a lot of size to our pack."

Swift said: "I'm over the moon to sign a new contract at Saints. It's a club I have always wanted to play for and I have enjoyed my time here so far."

Walmsley added: "I'm delighted the club has rewarded me with a new contract.

"I had a good season last year and now I am looking forward to getting stuck in and showing the fans the improvements I have made in pre-season."

Saints finished fifth in last season's Super League before losing to Leeds in the play-offs.
