Hull FC stand-off Richard Horne has signed a new two-year contract, keeping him at the KC Stadium until 2013.

Since making his Hull debut aged 16 in 1999, against Friday night's opponents Leeds, Horne has gone on to feature 317 times for his hometown club.

The Great Britain international, who turns 29 on Saturday, has played 21 games so far this season.

"It's good to get it done and dusted and I can focus on my rugby now," said Hull's current longest serving player.

"I am happy to be here and it's great I'm staying at Hull."

Coach Richard Agar added: "The negotiations didn't take too long at all.

"Richard has shown what a quality footballer he is over the last decade or so with the club and we hope to see even more of that now he has put pen-to-paper on a new deal.

"In this era of the modern game with the salary cap and short contracts, for Richard to remain a one-club man and such a loyal servant is a great achievement and something from which we have reaped the rewards.

"Hopefully those rewards will continue with the chance of some silverware over the next couple of years for Richard so he can end his career as a legend of the club."
