Flynn reaches century for Bramley

Winger Shaun Flynn is the first player to reach 100 appearances for Bramley since they reformed in 2003.

Flynn, 25, is renowned for his multi-coloured hair and dazzling pace, and reached the milestone last weekend against Liverpool.

“I knew the landmark was coming but didn’t know exactly when it would be!” exclaimed Shaun who has notched 38 tries in his time with the Buffaloes.

He first pulled on the Amber and Black aged 19 in the club’s first season back and has played an integral part in every season since notching up three Grand Final appearances and a clutch of awards and accolades along the way.

Shaun went on: “It’s just such a great team to play for with the great support we get and a set of lads who are second to none. My personal highlight was the game against Manley as it came just after the high of beating Hemel at Warrington.

“We’ve seen a lot of changes this season with Mark taking over and training is totally different. It’s delivering the results on the field which is what counts!” added Shaun who admits that his favourite try was a stunning length of the field score against Featherstone Lions two years ago.

Bramley coach Mark Butterill is magnanimous in his praise for the former West Bowling and Odsal Sedbergh flyer: “Flynny has been with Bramley since the very start and played a major role in all of our successes since 2003.

“He’s a great player, very reliable and I can’t think of a game where he hasn’t give 100%. He’s good for a laugh and massively respected by the other players and it’s only apt that he’s become the first new Bramley player to notch 100 games,” added Butterill whose side face Huddersfield Rangers at home this Saturday (2.30pm).
