Ryan Matterson

The Parramatta Eels are excited to announce the re-signing of talented local junior, Holden Cup five-eighth Ryan Matterson, for an additional three seasons.

The deal will see the 19-year-old Under 20s captain stay with the club until at least the end of the 2017 season.

“One of our club’s key strategic aims is to retain our top talent and to build the best junior pathway in the NRL,” Eels CEO Scott Seward said.

“Today’s announcement demonstrates that commitment because we have seen Ryan successfully progress through our development program over the past few years, and securing him on a long-term deal is a great boost for the club.”

In 2014, Matterson was selected into the victorious NSW Blues Under 20s side, and has also played in several NSW Cup games for the Eels’ feeder club, the Wentworthville Magpies.
