The 27-year-old centre has extended his current arrangement with the club until the end of the 2020 season thus guaranteeing him a further five years in the Claret and Gold.

The hometown academy product from the Newsome Panthers club has to date made 210 appearances scoring 94 tries as well as making 12 England appearances with six tries since he debuted back in 2008.

I am now one of the longest serving players on our books and enjoy working in and around the town with the younger players to try and encourage more

support which we all know we deserve. Our form on the pitch has deserved better but our loyal supporters never leave us and I hope that I can repay their faith in me by playing my part to take us to even greater success.

Terriers chief disappointed with ruling over Blackpool game

Huddersfield Town’s Chief Executive Nigel Clibbens says the club's fans have been treated unjustly, after a Football League commission ruled that Blackpool did not need to reimburse travelling Terriers fans following the abandonment of their match in May due to a pitch invasion.

Mr Clibbens told the club's official website that the ruling is 'a real kick in the teeth' for the fans, adding it is they who have lost out in all of this.

It hardly needs saying, but Huddersfield Town is extremely disappointed with the outcome of the Football Disciplinary Commission. The Club was informed by the Football League just before the announcement and we expressed our feelings very clearly to them straight away.

This outcome means that our supporters, who were entirely innocent in the abandonment of the game and behaved impeccably despite attempts to encourage them to join in, have now been hit thanks to circumstances entirely out of their control. In the Club’s opinion, Huddersfield Town fans have been treated really poorly and that is not right.

Coming more than two months after the abandonment, it's a real kick in the teeth for our fans who have waited patiently and for the Club and will do nothing for the reputation and credibility of the football authorities in the eyes of supporters.

We will speak to the Football League again once the detailed findings of the FDC are available, but as things stand it looks like the real losers in this are Huddersfield Town fans.

A Football League commission has ruled that Blackpool do not have to compensate Huddersfield supporters following the abandonment of their match in May due to a pitch invasion.

The Football League had requested that the commission forces Blackpool to reimburse travelling Terriers fans. However, the commission has ruled against this.

Blackpool have been hit with a suspended three-point deduction by the commission. The Football Association fined the Tangerines £50,000 last week and decreed they would be made to play a competitive match behind closed doors next season if another game was to be disrupted by fans.

The one-off partnership on a late turn shift in Huddersfield came after PC Charlotte Saville, of Huddersfield Neighbourhood Policing Team, asked if her father Safer Schools Officer PC Jeremy (Jem) Saville could work a shift with her before he retires.

As a child my father would come into my school and give talks and presentations, that could be a bit embarrassing, but now to have actually worked alongside him both as serving officers is great and is an experience I will not forget."
