Goalkicking wing three-quarter Jamie Foster has signed a new two-year contract with St Helens.

The 21-year-old has scored 574 points in 48 games since his Saints debut against Toulouse in 2010.

"I'm really happy to re-sign with my home town club," Foster said.

"I've benefited a lot from the first team experience that I've gained in my first two seasons in Super League, which has involved me in two Grand Finals already."

He continued: "There's a lot of competition for places in the first team this season and the squad is raring to get playing in our new ground, Langtree Park."

Foster is one of a host of young Saints players, including Super League Young Player of the Year Jonny Lomax, Lee Gaskell and Tom Makinson, who have progressed from the club's academy to the senior side.

He enjoyed a superb first full season in Super League, scoring 402 points in all games last year, and earned an England Knights call-up.

St Helens coach Royce Simmons added: "Jamie is one of the best goal kickers in the world.

"He already has a great amount of first team experience for a 21-year-old and this new deal gives him the opportunity to continue his progress and development as a wing three-quarter.

"He is more than capable of doing this."
