Bradford snap up young Warrington flyer

Bradford have confirmed the signing of young Warrington winger Reece Hamlett on a one-year deal for 2021.

The 19-year-old has been a standout performer for the Wolves’ reserves side after joining the club from Wigan Warriors’ scholarship.

He is no stranger to the Championship, having had a spell on loan at Rochdale last season, and will significantly bolster Bulls coach John Kear’s options out wide.

“I am over the moon to sign for such a great club like Bradford,” said Hamlett. “With the history the club has, from the trophies the club’s won to the players that have come through the system here it is unbelievable.

“The goals that the club are setting for the future to get back into Super League is something I couldn’t not want to be a part of so I am very happy and proud to be here.”

Bradford boss Kear added: “We are delighted to have Reece with us. He was a part of the reserves at Warrington this year and with no reserve grade next year he was looking for an opportunity.

“We know he is a really strong athlete, he is very quick and obviously has improvements to make but he has all the raw athletic abilities that are required.”
