Castleford Tigers hooker Adam Milner has signed a two-year contract extension that will keep him at the club until the end of 2016.

The 21-year-old, who had 12 months left on his existing contract, has been rewarded for a successful season in which he has scored seven tries in 20 Super League appearances, including four in his last three games.

"As soon as I got the contract offer I didn't think twice about signing it," Milner said. "I'm really happy about staying here for the next three years.

"The coaching staff that we have in Daryl Powell and Danny Orr have been massive for us and that, together with the players that we have, make me believe that the club is going places."

Tigers head coach Daryl Powell said: "It is crucial that we retain the young players are that developed through our system and go on to play in the first team.

"Adam Milner is a player who is a significant part of the future. His best years are ahead of him and I am confident he will be pressing to play at the highest level during that time."
