Castleford Tigers academy players Brad Foster and Brad Hey have signed one-year extensions to their contracts.

Eighteen-year-old loose-forward Foster joined the Tigers from Normanton Knights. He won the ‘Shooting Star’ award at the club’s 2013 player of the year awards in September.

Nineteen-year-old second rower Hey will look to build on an impressive 2013 season as he embarks on his third year with Castleford’s academy after joining the club from Castleford Panthers.

Tigers chief executive Steve Gill said: “The two Brads impressed the coaching staff over the last 12 months to earn themselves extensions and we are looking forward to watching them develop next season.”
