North Wales Crusaders have secured the services of centre Matt Reid in 2024.

Reid has hinted that 2023 would be his final season at North Wales Crusaders but since has had a change of heart.

Since joining the club first in 2013 with spells at Coventry and Oldham during the 2017 and 2018 seasons respectively.

The 31 year old centre rejoined North Wales Crusaders in 2019 and has made 59 appearances for the welsh outfit since 2019 and scoring a total of 23 tries, with 11 of those coming during last season.

Reid said "I'm really pleased to be staying at the club next season.

The plan was to stop playing at the end of last season.

However, I managed to find my enjoyment in playing again after a frustrating time with niggling injuries.

There's such a good atmosphere around the club and after going so close last season, the opportunity to go one better really excites me.

To continue to play in front of our fans is always a reason to want to stay on as their unwavering support makes such a difference to us as players.

Carl Forster commented "It’s brilliant to keep Reidy on board with us.

He’s a quality player and it showed at the back end of the season when he was consistently fit that we are a better team with him in it.

He knows the club very well now and that’s real important for us as a group moving forward."
