Brad Gallagher signs new deal with Bradford


Bradford forward Brad Gallagher has signed a new two-year deal with the club.

The 20-year-old has made six appearances for the Bulls after making his senior debut in 2019.

Bradford coach John Kear said: “I am absolutely delighted. He is a really important signing for us as a club and one of the youngsters who has emerged from the academy into an established first-team player.

“He will become a very accomplished edge back-rower I have no doubt and I am even happier he has committed for two years where we can help him develop further.

“He fits the profile of what we are trying to achieve, get into Super League with some experienced players and some quality young men we are recruiting and retaining.

“We see the likes of Brad developing into that standard – he has been exceptional since coming into the first team set up.

“He was given an opportunity and he has taken it. It is incredibly rewarding for the club and the academy because he does not look out of place and that is credit to all involved.

“I just cannot wait to get back training and playing. I can assure the fans the players will be really well prepared and highly motivated.”

Gallagher said: “I am buzzing to have signed a new deal, signing for two years along with John (Kear), he was a massive influence on my decision.

“Being 20 years of age I could not ask for a better coach and playing alongside the likes of Anthony England and Danny Brough, it was the best possible environment for me.”
