The new deal will keep him at the club until at least the end of the 2022 season.

Powell is one of the longest serving coaches in the Betfred Super League after taking the reins in 2014.

I’ve lived in Cas, I’m a Cas boy, I was born nearby and for me this is an awesome club and I haven’t achieved what I’d like to achieve here yet.

I suppose there’s been a far few rumours flying about recently but I spoke to the chairman Ian Fulton about a new contract quite a while back.

We spoke about where we are going to be taking the club, which was important for me as I’m pretty ambitious in terms of what I want the club to do and what I want to do myself. We had some good chats and I was offered an extension by Ian which I’ve accepted and I’m really excited about the challenge.

I’m just looking forward to helping the players hopefully to do something special. I think we’ve got an awesome group of players and an awesome group of coaching staff, and I know that everybody wants the club to grow.

There’s certain things as a club that we need to do better, as a team that we need to do better and as a coaching staff that we need to do better, and I want to help drive that to the next level.
