Wilson signs new deal with Whitehaven

Martyn Wilson is being given the chance to transfer his Championship One form to the second tier next season after signing a new deal with Whitehaven.

Hard to stop: Martyn Wilson shrugs off a Barrow defender

The versatile ex-Workington Town man featured just four times for Haven in the first half of last season but showed his potential when given his chance later in the year, claiming a starting place in the second-row after earlier featuring at centre and wing.

“He was blighted by injury at times, but he still had a decent season and is a good player to have in the squad,” said chief executive Barry Richardson.

“Martyn has never let us down and can perform in the Championship. He played very well for Cumbria in the Nines last season and can play in the forwards when needed, even playing prop in one game last year.”

New signing Paul Jackson expects to be back in action shortly after a minor clean-out operation on his knee.

“It was a couple of seasons of wear and tear, and this was the time of year to get it done.

“I’m looking forward to getting stuck,” said the former Super League prop, who will be fit for the festive clash with Workington Town at the Recre.

“I’ve played in a few local derbies and that will be another to add to the books.”

Warrington Wolves have confirmed they will not offer former Haven target Lee Mitchell a new deal.

The forward was loaned to Castleford last term and made 23 appearances for the Tigers, where he played alongside Jackson.

Mitchell recently spoke warmly of his dealings with Haven but has decided instead to move Down Under with Queensland Capras.

Good. But there is always room for improvement

Not good: There needs to be much more investment

I rarely travel by rail
