Will Dagger Signs One-Year Extension
Hull Kingston Rovers are delighted to announce that 21 year old Will Dagger has signed a one-year contract extension with the club. The deal will see Will remain at the club until at least the end of the 2021 season.
In the absence of Adam Quinlan, Dagger has been a ‘General’ at the back and helped guide the side to an impressive return to action since lockdown.
The full-back has admitted a change in attitude in training and on the field has been the inspiration behind earning a new contract at a club he ‘loves’.
“I’m feeling good. It adds that bit of security after tough times in the world. I feel like I’ve improved my game under Tony (Smith) and I’m looking to improve it even more. I love this club, I love being here so why not stay for longer,” said Dagger.
“Me and Tony had a chat pre-season and I think that’s changed my mentality towards training, the game, and day to day life. I think now I have my opportunity; I can prove what I have been doing in training, but it’s not just what I do at the ground, it’s what I do away from here as well.
“I feel maybe last year and the year before I got a bit too comfortable in my ways and things needed to change. Things have change at home, and I feel like I needed that kick up the backside to get going again.
“Tony has done that, and he’s getting the best out of me. It’s all about mindset, in the gym, you get out what you put in.
“It’s every young boys dream to have ball in hand, but there’s obviously two sides to it. Our defence has improved a lot, and the style of attack that we are playing is great.
“If we can keep on gelling as a team and putting out the performances we have been doing, it’ll look strong and silky.”Back To Latest News +
