Wentworthville junior Ryan Matterson has signed up again with the Parramatta Eels, for three more years.
The 19-year-old had a standout year in the Holden Cup and was rewarded with selection in the NSW under-20s team.
In recent times he has been promoted to the NSW Cup where he has continued his impressive try-scoring tally which stands at 14.
"It means the world to stay here," he said.
"I've always grown up around the Parramatta area and seen the players out and about and they've given me inspiration to follow in their footsteps. Brad Arthur's a really good coach. He brings out the best in everyone. There's a real positive vibe at the club."
