Rochdale sign up Sheridan brothers

Rochdale have secured the signings of brothers Lewis and Declan Sheridan ahead of next season.

Lewis joined the Hornets mid-way through 2019, after previously playing for the club in 2014.

Declan has yet to play at professional level but has represented England’s Lions side several times at amateur level, including at the Commonwealth Games in 2018.

“Declan has achieved so much in the amateur game having represented England Community Lions Under 18’s to Canada and England Lions Under 23’s at the Commonwealth Games in Australia, and the Barla open age to Fiji,” said Hornets coach Matt Calland. “He is an exciting player with his darting runs from dummy half and a great turn of speed.

“Lewis was at St. Helens as a kid on their scholarship, and was captain of Mayfield last season. He has also represented England Lions on a tour to Fiji and is a very versatile player who knows where the try line is.”

The pair become Rochdale’s fifth and sixth players for next season, joining Jordan Syme, Luke Fowden, Callum Ogden and James Connaughton.
