Danny Addy agrees new Bradford deal

Bradford back-rower Danny Addy has signed a new one-year contract at Odsal.

Addy, 21, made 15 appearances for the Bulls last season and has decided to renew his deal after speaking to new head coach Francis Cummins.

Addy said: “Franny and I spoke this week and he told me that he wants me playing in the back row. I think that’s my best position; loose forward or second row and I would be more than happy to do a job there week in week out.

“Franny played a big part in my decision to sign a new deal.  He played a major role at the club last season as assistant coach and I like him a lot.  What he said convinced me that this is the club I definitely want to be at for a while now and I’m absolutely delighted to have signed a new contract.”

The Pontefract-born forward made his Bulls debut in a Challenge Cup win over Dewsbury back in 2010, and ironically went on to spend a loan spell with the Rams in the Championship.

He has since registered 41 first team appearances for Bradford, scoring four tries and kicking 19 goals.

Cummins added: “I am really pleased we have been able to retain Danny for next season.  He is a very talented player who, whilst he does offer great utility value, should be looking to be more position specific next season.  I am looking for Danny to put his hand up and stake a claim for a place in the Back Row next year.”
