Bradford Bulls have announced the signing of young half-back Charlie Harris from Castleford Tigers.
Harris came through the Scholarship and Academy system at Castleford Tigers before penning a one-year deal having impressed for the Tigers’ Academy side in both fixtures against Bradford in 2021.
Bradford boss John Kear believes the Bulls have recruited ‘one of the better’ players from the Wheldon Road side’s Academy and are hoping for big things from the young half.
“He is a good player, he is a real whill of the whisp half back who we feel was one of their better players in their Academy,” said Kear, who is sponsored by Bradford Bulls Banter.
“He is obviously over the Academy age now and we have moved to bring him to Bradford for next season.
“It will give him the chance to feature in our Reserves and in the trial games and again, we are expecting big things of Charlie.”
Bradford are attempting to earn promotion to Super League after a long-term hiatus, but they will have to do so without star halfback Danny Brough who recently retired following injury.
