Bradford sign Hunslet star David Foggin-Johnston

Bradford have signed winger David Foggin-Johnston on a one-year deal from Hunslet.

The 22-year-old came through the ranks at Warrington Wolves and has gained experience in League 1 with York City Knights, Doncaster and Hunslet.

Bulls coach John Kear is a big fan of Foggin-Johnston and thinks he will add a lot to the team.

He said: “He is an exciting young winger, and he’ll be putting pressure on the more established ones.

“One of the reasons that we did look to sign him was when we played Hunslet we thought he was a pest to tell you the truth.

“He carries the ball out of dummy half and he challenges you and we knew full well from playing in prep games and doing our preview of Hunslet that he can finish. He’s got some pace.

“He was one that you sat up and thought that this kid can play, and he can. He’ll get an opportunity next year to show all the fans at Odsal exactly how good he is. He’s another exciting piece of the jigsaw that we are trying to piece together for this club to go onward and upward in a sustainable progression.”
