Jake Eccleston, Ed Barber and Billy Gaylor have signed one year deals with Halifax RLFC.

Eccleston and Barber both featured in the first team last season after impressing head coach Richard Marshall in trials with the club, while Gaylor will be hoping to break into the first team next season.

Young winger Eccleston made his debut in the victory at Hunslet Hawks in the regular season and also impressed in the Super 8s Qualifiers game with Leigh Centurions and Salford Red Devils at the MBi Shay.

Eccleston scored his first try for the club in the away game against Wakefield Wildcats.

Former Elland junior Barber made a try scoring debut for his hometown club in the comprehensive win over Whitehaven in May, the back rower crossing in front of the South Stand faithful.

The trio join Adam Tangata, Mitch Cahalane, Scott Murrell and Ben Kaye in committing their future to the club ahead of the 2016 season, which kicks off at the Shay on Sunday, February 7 against Whitehaven.
