WARRINGTON Wolves have handed a two-year contract extension to in-form academy product Harvey Livett.
Livett, 21, came through the Ryland Sharks amateur club and has made 22 first team appearances for the Wolves, scoring a hat-trick in the recent win over Leeds at Headingley.
He said: “I had a few other options but I’m a Warrington lad and I always wanted to stay with the club. When I was growing up I used to go to home and away games watching the team so it means a lot to wear the shirt each week. All my family are from Warrington and it means a lot to play for my hometown club.
“I’m looking forward to the next two years and I’m confident we can win some silverware in that time.
“We’re looking good this year in the league and are still in the Challenge Cup so hopefully we can challenge for both this season.”
Club chief executive Karl Fitzpatrick said: “It is great to retain a product of our academy system. This is an area we have significantly invested in over recent years.
“We had to beat off NRL interest to keep Harvey at our club.
“With the current scholarship team going unbeaten this season we are confident there will be many more homegrown players progressing into the first-team in the future.”
The Wolves are back in action this Friday when Hull travel to the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
