The Dyldam Parramatta Eels are thrilled to announce Co-Captain Tim Mannah has re-signed with the club for an additional three seasons.
A local junior, Tim has spent his entire NRL career with the Eels since debuting in 2009 and has currently played 129 first grade games in Blue and Gold.
“I’m very excited to be sticking around because Parramatta is home,” Mannah said.
“I walk in the office and see people I’ve known since I was a kid; it’s a place I love being at, and I’m really honoured to be at this club.”
“To pull on the Blue and Gold jersey means a lot, and to be able to play in a team I’m so passionate about and with a club that I love never stops giving me a buzz.”
Head Coach Brad Arthur says Tim is part of the fabric of the Eels, and is thrilled to see a Parramatta junior remain with the club until the end of the 2017 season.
“With Tim it’s not just about the talent he brings on the field,” Arthur said.
“He’s the type of person you want to build your club around, and I’m glad to see him staying in Blue and Gold.”
Mannah is also an ambassador for the Ronald McDonald House at Westmead, and in 2013 was a nominee for the NRL’s Ken Stephen Medal for service to the community.
“Tim is a fantastic ambassador for our club, not only for his efforts in the team, but for his hard work with various organisations in our community,” Dyldam Parramatta Eels CEO Scott Seward said.
“He’s a great leader and we’re very proud to see him re-sign with the club for the next three seasons.”
In 2013, Tim established the Mannah Foundation, which will be fundraising at Monday night’s Johnny Mannah Cup game against the Cronulla Sharks.
