Bulls tie up Langley til 2010

Bradford Bulls have today announced that Loose Forward Jamie Langley has agreed a new contract with the club and will remain at the Grattan Stadium until the end of the 2010 Super League season.

Langley, 23, made his debut for the club in 2002 and has made 112 appearances, scoring 27 tries.  He Captained the England Academy team that defeated the Australian Schoolboys in 2004 and only injury prevented him being selected for last season’s Tri Nations Squad to tour Australia

Langley is delighted to have secured his future with the club:

I'm just pleased to get it all sorted.  We've been in the process for a few months now but I'm really happy at Bradford. They're a great club, going in the right direction with the coaching staff and playing personnel we've got.  I've obviously been happy with my own performances over the last year and saw no reason not to stay.

It doesn't seem like two minutes ago I was signing here from school as a 16-year-old and I've played in some great Bradford teams since like the one that swept the board in 2003 and a really strong side in 2005. But this is as strong a squad as any we have had. It's a different type of team as well with a lot of new faces and hopefully we can go on and win more trophies.   There's always the possibility of doing that at such a strong club and that's something I'm looking for over the next four years."

Bulls Coach Steve McNamara sees him as a vital component of the club's on-going quest for success;

"I'm absolutely delighted that we've managed to secure Jamie's signature. He's a fantastic person and a great athlete, very knowledgeable on the game and a potential captain of this club if he keeps progressing in the same manner. Jamie's a real leader and it was very, very important we sorted his future out here with Bradford. I definitely reckon he's good enough to win Great Britain honours if he carries on improving like he is, maintaining his consistency, and it's great to have him on board.
