Huddersfield sign full-back Olly Ashall-Bott

Huddersfield have announced the signing of full-back Olly Ashall-Bott on a 10-month deal.

The 23-year-old initially signed for Ottawa Aces in August before the Canadian club postponed their debut season in League One.

Ashall-Bott has previously played for Widnes and London Broncos, as well as loan spells at Giants head coach Ian Watson’s former club Salford and North Wales Crusaders.

Watson said: “Oliver has shown massive potential over the last few years but has had a tough run of injuries to deal with.

“Oliver came to join Salford on trial last year lacking game time and fitness and he proved all the work he had done in rehab at London had put him in a great position physically and his performances against Warrington and Hull KR didn’t disappoint.

“With a full pre-season under his belt and working with the backroom team at the Giants, Oliver is with the right group of players to prove he is a top full-back and will create even greater competition to our outside backs.”

Ashall-Bott is expected to link up with the Giants when they return to training later this week.
