Learmonth Agrees Senior Giants Contract

19-year-old Mick Learmonth graduates from the club's academy.

Huddersfield Giants have signed their 19-year-old prop forward Mick Learmonth to a one year Super League contract for 2015.

The stand out performer for the club’s academy will move into the full time environment for the start of pre-season.

Learmonth said: “My aim at the start of the year was to get back into a full time situation so I have achieved that and thank Paul Anderson for the opportunity.

"We have had a decent year in the 19’s and its’ been frustrating to miss the last few games but I know I will be fit and ready to rip in when pre-season starts.

"There are lots of top forwards here and we have Paul which is a great help to me and I know that what I have really done is given myself another chance to impress and keep improving to reach my new goal which is now a Super League debut in 2015.”
