KEIGHLEY Cougars are today delighted to announce that Jack Miller has signed a new two-year contract with the club.
This new contract means Jack has put pen-to-paper on a deal that will run until the end of the 2023 season.
Speaking of his decision to stay with the club, Miller said: “I’ve obviously been here since the dark days and when you’ve gone through all that you become emotionally attached to the club.
“It has become a home away from home really full of great people and to leave would have been difficult.
“I want to carry on moving forward with the club and achieve our goal of promotion to the Championship.
“I’m here for a long time, not just a good time.”
Originally joining the club prior to the 2019 season from Doncaster, Miller has firmly established himself as a favourite amongst teammates, supporters, and staff alike with his performances on the field as well as his personality off it.
An ever present since arriving at Cougar Park, the half-back was the club’s top try scorer in the 2019 season and made an immediate impact under the stewardships of both Craig Lingard and Rhys Lovegrove.
Winning numerous awards at the end of the season for his contributions during the 2019 season, Jack signed a two-year deal that ran until the end of this current season.
He is a regular in the charts for tries, goals, and points as he registered his 200th point in Keighley colours during last week’s victory over the London Skolars.
In his 34 appearances for the club to date, Jack has scored 21 tries whilst also providing 58 conversions from the boot.
The fans favourite’s decision to commit his future at Cougar Park is one that has pleased Chairman Mick O’Neill MBE.
“It is absolutely brilliant that Jack will be staying with the Cougars until 2023,” beamed O’Neill.
“I’m really pleased he has made the decision to re-sign with Keighley as well all think the absolute world of Jack both on the field as a player, and off the field as person.
“As a club we are going places and we want to reach these places with Jack continuing to play his part as a key member of the squad as he is one of the pin up boys of the Cougars at this current moment in time.
“I would also like to thank both Head Coach Rhys Lovegrove and Jake Webster for all their hard work assisting myself in the negotiations with Jack and I am delighted that the deal is now done.”
