Dewsbury re-sign former Huddersfield and Bradford forward

Dewsbury have re-signed former Huddersfield and Bradford forward Liam Johnson on a one-year deal.

The 22-year-old signed for the Rams at the start of last season but spent the majority of the campaign recovering from a ruptured Achilles, managing just three games in 2019.

Before that he had spells with Oldham, Sheffield and the Bulls after coming through the academy at Huddersfield.

Despite his limited game time, however, Dewsbury have decided to tie him down for a second year.

“Liam did well when he came into the team considering the length of time he had been out, said Rams head coach Lee Greenwood. “After a very disrupted last two years for him, he is looking forward to a full pre-season and hopefully an injury free season.

His attitude was the thing impressed me while he was injured, attending every session and game and helping out where possible.

“He likes it here and wants to show people what he can do. With plenty of hard work over the next few months he can become a quality back rower at this level.”
