Blake Ayshford
Future secure at Tigers

Wests Tigers can announce the signing of centre Blake Ayshford until the end of the 2015 season.

Off contract at the end of 2012, Ayshford has re-signed with the club for a further three seasons.

Like many of the current Wests Tigers squad, the 23-year-old joined the club as a youngster and has come through the development system.

A permanent member of head coach Tim Sheens first grade side, Ayshford’s signature means the formidable centre pairing with Chris Lawrence will continue for another four seasons yet.

It also makes him one of the many squad members who have committed their future to the club for a significant period of time.

“I’m really pleased to have my future secure for the next few years as this club is like a family to me so I never wanted to go anywhere else,” Ayshford said.

“We have a strong and pretty stable squad of players which looks likely to be the case for some time to come.

“It’s also great news that Tim (Sheens) has re-signed too as he’s been the only elite coach I’ve worked with.”
