Bradford re-sign ex-Super League winger

Bradford have announced that winger Matty Dawson-Jones has signed a one-year contract extension for 2021.

The 29-year-old joined the club at the start of 2020 after several spells in both Super League and the Championship for clubs including St Helens, Huddersfield and Hull.

He made just a handful of appearances for John Kear’s side before the Championship was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, scoring four tries.

“I am made up to be staying,” said Dawson-Jones. “John is a big pull in me staying and although I haven’t worked with him long I have enjoyed working under him so far.

“It was a pretty easy transition coming into the club. I knew some of the boys like of Jordan Lilley so they helped me integrate into the team. I thought I started really well, hit the ground running and to have this sprung on us is frustrating.

“We are ready to go and train hard to hit the ground running. We will go into pre-season fitter than ever before and hopefully that’ll lead to being stronger and battle for promotion in 2021.”

Head coach Kear added: “Matty slotted in seamlessly even though he joined so close to the start of the season. I was very keen to keep Matty for 2021 so we triggered the extension through the clause in his contract and he is happy with that.

“He is another hard-working honest fella who goes through a great amount of work in attack and defence. He is the type of character that we need and want, his ability is Super League standard and his signing is another positive and I am very excited indeed about getting going again.”
