Kevin Brown will remain with the Huddersfield Giants until the end of the 2012 season after signing a new three-year contract.

The stand-off, 24, told the Giants website: "The club has progressed every year since I came from Wigan.

"The club is starting to go places and as soon I knew Huddersfield wanted to re-sign me I had no hesitation."

Brown joined Huddersfield in 2006 after beginning his career as a youngster with the Wigan academy.

He added: "I want to continue to be a part of these exciting times. We are having a good season so far and hopefully we can finish this season well and build on it for next year.

"We've got the whole structure in place at the Giants and our challenge now is to take this club to the next level."

He is definitely showing improvement in all key areas of his game

Giants head coach Nathan Brown said: "When I first came here I had an open mind with all the players.

"I always thought Kevin had some things going for him and generally if the team plays well Kevin contributes to this.

"He is an improving player and this season we have solely tried to put him in one position.

"There are some things about Kevin's game that are developing, he is a good running player and supporting player and his passing is improving.

"As he plays more football he will continue to develop the consistency of getting the balance right between these three.

"This will all come with experience as he settles into one position and he is definitely showing improvement in all key areas of his game."
