McCarthy-Scarsbrook extends Saints stay to 2016
9:51am Tuesday 28th January 2014 in Latest News
SAINTS have continued the process of tying key players to new deals after confirming Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook has extended his contract.
The forward has signed an extension that will see him stay at Langtree Park until the end of season 2016.
Saints head coach Nathan Brown said: “Louie is a very good player who is popular amongst his team-mates.
"He’s versatile too, as he proved last season, and can play anywhere in the pack.
"He also has a lot of scope for improvement and his career is on the rise."
McCarthy-Scarsbrook joined Saints from Harlequins on a four-year contract in 2010.
The 28-year-old made his debut against Wigan Warriors in the 2011 ‘Millennium Magic’ event and has gone on to make more than 90 appearances for Saints, scoring 18 tries.
He has also represented his country twice and hopes to force his way back into the international reckoning.
Louie added: "I've been up here for a few years now and I'm settled. Saints are a great club who want to win trophies and I want to achieve things in the game.
"I'm hoping I can realise that here. Signing an extension was a no brainer for me really.
"I came north to win things and I'm sure we can do that. I know I am not the finished article and I have to continue learning.
"I put pressure on myself to strive to be the best I can and I'm looking forward to this season and the future."
