Huddersfield Giants have today received a boost ahead of this Sunday's home game against Warrington with the news that Martin Aspinwall has signed a new contract with the club.

The powerful 25-year-old has signed a three-year contract extension keeping him at the club until the end of the 2010 season.

The former Wigan ace is regarded as one of the best wingers in the game and Giants coach Jon Sharp is delighted he will be staying at the Galpharm, and is confident he will soon be back in the Great Britain fold:

"It's fantastic we've been able to hold on to one of the best wingers in the game, and I'm proud to have got him on board for the next three years. As far as I'm concerned there's no better player at returning kicks than Martin, because he possesses such great strength. He's also quick enough to finish and is very hard to stop close to the line.

"I don't think there's any doubt we missed him at the beginning of the season when his groin injury kept him out for longer than we would have wished. But he returned to us stronger than ever, and I'm sure he'll soon be back in the Great Britain set-up.''


Aspinwall was delighted to sign the deal:

"I'm obviously delighted to be staying here, and to get three years is fantastic. I've loved every minute here, and I hope I can continue to say that until the end of 2010 when the contract comes to an end. That's something I'm sure will be achieved if we can start to fulfil our goals, starting by getting into the play-offs for the first time this season. It's still going to take a massive effort, because this Super League competition is tougher than ever. But we have the ability to do it, and I hope I can play as full a part as possible. It's great that I've got my future sorted out because it means I can just focus on the games ahead."<./i>'
