England youth internationals Robbie Storey and Joe Summers have signed professional terms with Castleford Tigers.
The Tigers are busy sorting out their under 19s for next year and have added to their academy ranks with promising duo Storey arriving from the City of Hull Academy and Summers joining from Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.
Speaking on the capture of these two rising stars, Tigers head of youth Pete Riding said: “We faced competition from a number of clubs to capture these signings.
“We feel both lads have a huge amount of potential which has already been recognised in their young careers with selection at England youth level.
“The fact that these lads have committed themselves to Castleford Tigers is further recognition that the environment we are creating is one where young players aspire to be.”
Castleford Tigers U19s are back in action at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle on Thursday night when they take on Wakefield Wildcats with a 7pm kick-off. Entry is £3 for adults, £1.50 for juniors, with season ticket holders free.
