Gordon, Thompson in for long haul at Titans
The Jetstar Gold Coast Titans have further strengthened their playing stocks for the future by today re-signing rising stars Kevin Gordon and Bodene Thompson to long-term deals.
Young flyer Gordon has signed a new four-year deal which will see him remain at the club until the end of the 2014 season while versatile forward Thompson has signed until the end of 2013 with an option for the 2014 season.
Gordon, a Sawtell (Northern NSW) junior, and Thompson, a product of Keebra Park High School, are both graduates of the Titans Junior Pathways Program, having made the step up from the Jetstar Titans' NYC Under-20s team last year.
Jetstar Titans Managing Director Michael Searle said it was significant that both had made a long-term commitment to the club given their respective age - (Gordon; 20 years of age) and (Thompson; 21 years of age).
