Hunslet have announced the signing of winger Dale Bloomfield from North Wales Crusaders.

The 31-year-old has signed a one-year deal with the Parksiders after scoring 13 tries in 21 games for Crusaders in 2018.

Bloomfield came through the Widnes Vikings academy and has a wealth of experience, having played for Rochdale Hornets and Oldham.

Hunslet coach Gary Thornton commented: “Dale is a quality winger with proven finishing prowess at this level.

“He has bags of experience in the Championship and League 1 under his belt. He is brave and quick, with a good try-scoring record wherever he’s played, and has always been a threat to us in opposition colours, so he will be a great addition to the squad.

“He’s a hard-working winger who will do his share of work coming out of our own half, as well as being an attacking threat out wide in the opposition half.”

Bloomfield added: “I’m looking forward to this new chapter in my career and challenging at the top end of the table.”
