Bradford Bulls have announced the signing of Dalton Desmond-Walker from Keighley Cougars on a one-year deal.
The former Keighley man, who was part of their unbeaten League One winning campaign joins up with Mark Dunning’s Squad in 2023, after impressing in the Reserves in 2022!
Desmond-Walker, who is originally from Australia, joined the club on dual-reg last season and put in a number of good performances in the Reserves, and more recently in the fixture vs Greece, as the national side warmed up ahead of their World Cup campaign.
The powerhouse prop commented on the move, and how ‘proud’ he is to have signed for the Bradford Bulls.
“It’s a proud day for me and my family, to be a part of a historic organisation and team such as the Bradford Bulls, I cannot wait to get started”, said Dalton, who is available for sponsorship.
“Personally, I’m thrilled to sign here, my family are both fans of the sport and have supported me since i was young, they’re both so proud of me.
“I’m ready to start pre-season and rip in, I can’t wait to meet the other blokes and start a new chapter in my career in Rugby League, the excitement and a goal to achieve is going to help create a buzz around the stadium.
“The brand is renowned in Rugby League, so the chance to pull on the jersey and create new moments to cherish as well as earning the respect of the fans and staff alike was one I couldn’t turn down.“
His signing comes after the Bulls lost their own key player Thomas Doyle to the Cougars earlier this year.
Both sides have made some impressive signings for next year as both look to show their intentions and dominate the Bradford area in 2023.
The Bulls only yesterday announce the signing of former Super League Champion Jack Walker from Leeds Rhinos whimsy Keighley have signed the likes of Mark Ioane and Ben Crooks.
