Bradford sign Matty Dawson-Jones from Hull FC

Bradford have signed winger Matty Dawson-Jones from Hull FC on a one-year contract.

The 29-year-old joined Hull from Leigh ahead of last season but only made one appearance for the Airlie Birds as he picked up a knee injury which put him out for the campaign.

Dawson-Jones has an option in his one-year deal with the Bulls for a further 12 months on top of that.

He said: “I am over the moon to be a Bradford player. After a year out, I needed to get back playing and to get interest from a club like the Bulls was massive.

“Being able to work for a coach of John Kear’s stature too was a huge part of the decision – he is a top quality coach and working for him is a great opportunity for me to kickstart my career again.

“I am looking forward to getting in and getting started, hopefully I can help some of the younger lads but I can still learn as well, I can still develop my game.

“I will give 100% every week for supporters to try give them what they deserve and try get Bradford fighting for the top spots to get back into Super League.”

Bradford coach John Kear added: “He is a quality recruit, he is a Super League player with extensive experience on the wing and in the centres and I am delighted he has agreed to join us.

“He will bring experience amongst our many exciting young players and what I like about him is that he is willing to do the dirty work and put a good shift in. He is a very good finisher as well.

“It is a statement of intent because he is quality. Quality players coming in to what I feel is a quality club, in to a quality squad and his signing represents another step forward.”
