NEWCASTLE have made an early start to 2022 team building by announcing James Wright will remain with the club this year.
Wright will continue as skipper of the Diamonds having taken over role during the current campaign, in which he made a successful return to the sport.
Club owner Rob Grant said: “James has been a total professional for us – a real pleasure to work with, and he was super-keen to come back to us for next year having enjoyed his time up here to date.
“He’s truly ‘old school’ with bags more potential to bring to the table, so we’re only too delighted he’s back with the Diamonds.
“This past season he was involved in some terrific tussles proving he’s still very much capable of mixing it with the best opposition the other team can throw at him.”
