One of the most exciting talents in League 1, Lewis Young enters his fourth season with Newcastle Thunder and will be a key figure for the club during the 2019 season.

Joining back in April 2016 after impressing the club’s coaches in training and his games for Team Northumbria, Young’s performances over the last three seasons have seen him become an in-demand player with Thunder beating off interest from clubs across the leagues to keep him on Tyneside.

A former junior at Redhill ARLFC back in his home town of Castleford, Young honed his skills through Castleford Panthers and Featherstone Lions before moving to the North East to study at Northumbria University.

Since then, he has proven his skills in an array of positions including at half-back, centre and his preferred spot of fullback, where wide open spaces provide him with a licence to roam and the opportunity to break defensive lines and cause chaos.

Making 64 appearances and scoring 43 tries, along with 19-man of the match accolades, Young is very much at the heart of what is good about Newcastle Thunder
