Eels re-sign Corey Norman until 2019
The Parramatta Eels are pleased to announce the re-signing of Corey Norman for a further three years until the 2019 season. Since debuting for the Eels in 2014, Corey has cemented himself in the halves playing a total of 64 games for the club over his first three years.
Eels Chairman Max Donnelly said that the retention of Norman was a key part of the Club’s recruitment and retention strategy and will be followed by more positive player announcements over the coming days.
“The Club now has a clearer picture of its Salary Cap position allowing it to finalise a number of player negotiations that had been placed on hold over the past couple of months."
“We have been pleased with how Corey has responded to the personal challenges of this year and we look forward to his contribution to the clubs success over the next three years."
“I am pleased that we can now start to bring positive announcements to our Members regarding our playing squad for 2017,” said Mr Donnelly.
Eels coach Brad Arthur said that consistency and hard work over the past three years would mean Corey’s best footballing years are ahead of him.
“Corey has progressively improved his game over the first three years at the club and in 2016 showed how valuable his contribution is in the success of our team."
“Through today’s announcement Corey has showed his commitment to the future direction of our Club and I have no doubt he will play a major role in moving our team forward over the next three years."
