Former Wakefield Trinity winger Lee Kershaw has put pen to paper on a one-year deal with London Broncos following a successful trial.
Earlier this week, Love Rugby League exclusively revealed that Kershaw had been offered a contract following a one-month trial with the Broncos, and he has now officially signed on the dotted line for the 2024 campaign.
The 24-year-old has spent the last four weeks with Mike Eccles’ side on a trial basis, featuring in all three of their pre-season friendlies, scoring three tries.
Kershaw will don the No. 2 jersey for the Broncos in their return to Super League this year.
Broncos director of rugby and performance Mike Eccles said: “I’m really happy it’s all worked out from both ends and that a deal has been agreed to keep Lee with us for the forthcoming season.
“Lee slots into our group perfectly as a person with great humility and work ethic. His performances in the trial games have been outstanding too.”
Lee Kershaw delighted to finally land a contract ahead of the new Super League season: ‘It’s a feeling of relief’
Speaking on his permanent deal with London, Kershaw admits to a ‘feeling of relief’ to finally get his future secured heading into the new season, which gets underway next week.
He said: “I can look forward to the season now and getting into games and everything. It’s obviously a big change for me but one I’m looking forward to.
“It’s done just at the right time, a couple of weeks before the season ahead of a big few games coming up.
“It’s been good (the trial), getting used to the players, and that will still take time but it’s a good bunch that I want to play with.
“It’s a feeling of relief to know that it’s finally done and now it’s about positivity to play hard and get the wins that we need.”
