Hull FC’s goalkicking half-back Marc Sneyd has signed a three-year contract extension that will keep him at the KCOM Stadium until the end of 2022.

The 28-year-old former Salford Red Devils and Castleford Tigers player, who has kicked two match winning drop-goals in golden point so far this season, was out of contract this year and is delighted to secure his future.

“It’s a massive weight off my shoulders and now I can fully concentrate on playing my rugby for Hull rather than worrying about my future,” he said.

“The rugby is going really well at the moment and my family is really settled here in Hull so there was never any reason for us to move away.

“I am really looking forward to just cracking on in the next few years and hopefully we get the chance to win a few more trophies.”

Sneyd has kicked 408 goals in 115 appearances since joining the club in 2015 from Castleford and is a two-time Lance Todd Trophy winner at Wembley.

Hull coach Lee Radford said: “When I took over as head coach of the club there were a lot of games that we lost by four or six points. Marc Sneyd’s goal kicking ability means that we don’t find ourselves in that situation as often.

“I still think that Marc’s best years are ahead of him despite the fact that he has already brought two Challenge Cup trophies home for us.

“He is the sort of player who steps up to the plate when the pressure is on. We want him to be rolling out in some more cup finals over the next three years.”
