Hooker Paddy Hargreaves will embark on a third season as part of the Thunder ranks, following a breakthrough year in 2017 which saw him make his first senior appearances for the club.
Making his debut in the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup, the former Whitley Bay Barbarian also featured in the 10-66 win over Hemel Stags in a year where young local talent was given the chance to impress for the club.
A product of the North East regional academy, he is a player with a high work ethic and a strong drive to constantly improve himself and play at the highest level possible.
As a member of Team Northumbria’s impressive rugby league side alongside the likes of Sam Luckley, Dan Turland and Lewis Young, Hargreaves is also attempting to play his way into the England Universities’ side for the Student World Cup in July next year.
With an ability to also play in as a loose forward, he is a versatile addition to the club ranks for 2017.
Setting himself achievable goals for the new season, the 21 year old has a clear idea of what he needs to do to achieve them and says there is a positive mood in the camp in the early days of pre season.
