Gibson completes move to Bradford

Bradford have completed the signing of experienced centre Ashley Gibson from Wakefield.

The 30-year-old has spent the bulk of his career in the top tier with Leeds, Salford and Castleford.

Gibson said: “My agent got on the phone to me last night and mentioned the move to actually happen. We’ve been talking about it for a few days and last night it came to life.

“It happened really fast – I got the contract emailed through and then came up to the club. I got my boots on straight away and got into training.

“I’ve been in Super League for a few years now, so I hope that I can bring some of my experience to the side. It’s something that I’m really looking forward to and hope we can kick on.”

Bulls’ boss Greg Toovey added: “We don’t have to train him – he can step straight in and carry on from where he left off.

“A person of his quality and experience can step right in, he trained with us today, he felt at home and didn’t miss a beat really. I’m sure he’ll be well regarded by the fans and fellow players.

“I’m sure that he will help enhance and bring some tenacity to the club when things get tough in a game.

“The Bradford club is a place where people want to play – it has a lot of history and status in the game, so I’m not surprised but I’m very grateful and hopefully he can help us finish the year strongly.”
