Donaldson handed new Bradford deal

Bradford back-rower James Donaldson has signed a new one-year contract with the club.

Donaldson, 21, missed most of last season after rupturing his cruciate ligament in the second game of the season at Castleford.

He said: “It’s like starting all over again now. I’ve done my knee twice but this is a clean slate. My body is feeling good and I can’t wait to get back in training and try and put things right again.  There was a few other options but there was nowhere else I wanted to be because I love Bradford.  I love all the boys here and that’s the main reason I wanted to stay.”

Cumbrian Donaldson, who signed from Wath Brow Hornets, made his Super League debut back in 2009, and has since made 35 appearances for the club.

Head Coach Francis Cummins said: “I always wanted to keep James because he’s got a great attitude and he’s fought back from two big injuries.  He loves the club, which is a huge thing for me, and has known nothing but Bradford since he was 15. Now he has finally put pen to paper I’m delighted.”
