London Broncos are back in Super League alongside the likes of Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors and Warrington Wolves in 2024 and as they prepare for that have completed two more signings.
They have announced the return of Gideon Boafo to the club ahead of our return to Super League in 2024.
The winger, a product of the club’s academy, made his first team debut back in 2018.
Following a spell at Newcastle Thunder, Gideon now returns to the capital.
Speaking on the signing, London Broncos Director of Rugby & Performance Mike Eccles said he is pleased to bring him “home”;
“What a talent Gideon is! It’s been a joy to watch Gidz develop through our academy system and transition into Championship rugby.
“It’s my pleasure to bring him back and see him take that next step to super league rugby with us. Gideon’s best years are ahead of him and I’m sure he’ll be getting fans off their seats with electric pace.
“Welcome home Gidz.”
Boafo was a stand out performer despite Newcatle’s struggles last season and he can’t wait to return to London and test himself at the top level;
“To say I’m excited is an understatement. Being in Super League at the club I grew up playing for is a blessing.
“I feel blessed to be able to play rugby and be around my family.”
James Meadows with the 25 year old also returning to the club. A familiar face for fans as we welcome another former player back to where it all started following the arrivals of Sadiq Adebiyi & Gideon Boafo.
Meadows made 40 appearances for the Broncos after making his first team debut in 2018 and returns after a successful 2 year spell at Batley Bulldogs.
Speaking on the signing, London Broncos Director of Rugby & Performance Mike Eccles said:
“Jimmy has come off the back of two incredible seasons with Batley, playing a key role in getting them to two finals.
“The last 2 seasons have been vital for Jimmy to continue to learn his trade as a half back and crucially develop consistency in performance. He is ready to take on Super League and I can’t wait to see him back out there in a London jersey.
“Welcome home Jimmy.”
Meadows was Batley’s top points scorer last season with 190 points and is excited to bring his qualities back to London on their return to the top flight;
“Coming through the scholarship and academy systems I know what it means to play for London and the values the club is built on.
“I’m immensely proud to have an opportunity to play for my home club again and I can’t wait to get into preseason.”
