MATTY Smith has put pen to paper on a new four-year deal with Wigan Warriors.

The scrum-half, who signed from Salford in July 2012, has become an integral part of Shaun Wane’s team, winning the Lance Todd Trophy in the 2013 Challenge Cup final and played a huge role in Wigan’s double-winning success.

Smith has been instrumental this year, scoring 276 points with his form earning a call up to the Super League Dream Team for the second consecutive year. The new deal will see Smith stay with the Warriors until the end of the 2018 season.

Wigan coach Shaun Wane said: “I am so pleased that such an influential and skilful player like Matty has committed his future to us. His desire for success is a perfect match for us as a Club and an organisation. He wants to be the best and he knows he can achieve that at Wigan.”

Smith added: “I love everything about the club. Once the contract had been offered it didn’t take me long to make my mind up to sign. Wigan have surpassed all the promises that were made when they originally signed me. My game has improved significantly under the guidance of Shaun Wane who was an important factor in me extending my stay.

“Now I just want to win as much as I can with this great Club and with my team mates who I enjoying working with so much.”
