Saints’ rising young star Matty Costello has been named Betfred Championship Young Player of the Year, having spent the majority of the season on dual registration with Sheffield Eagle.
The 20-year-old, who made his senior debut for St Helens against Huddersfield Giants earlier this year, said: “I can’t really sum this up in words how I’m feeling right now but just want to say a massive thanks to staff, lads and fans at Sheffield.
“I now just want to kick on and finish this season on a high with Saints.”
Costello is a product of Saints Academy system and signed a new two-year contract last week.
He hass played six times for the Saints this season – one of those alongside a plethora of Academy products that lifted the League Leaders’ Shield against Hull two weeks ago.
In that match James Bentley made his debut – and he won this award in 2017.
Matty added: “I just want to say a massive thanks to staff, lads and fans at Sheffield.”
