Jamaica flyer signs for Dewsbury

Jamaica international Alex Brown has signed for Dewsbury for the 2019 season.

The 31-year-old winger enjoyed a spell with the Rams in 2017 and has earned seven caps for Jamaica, scoring five tries.

Brown has spent time at Huddersfield Giants, Widnes Vikings, Hull Kingston Rovers, Gateshead Thunder, Leigh Centurions, Halifax, Coventry Bears, Bradford Bulls and Batley Bulldogs during his career.

On re-signing for the Rams, Brown said: “It was Lee Greenwood that tempted me to sign back at the club.

“He asked me whether I would like to come down to the club and try to battle to win a shirt. I told him why not.

“He told me he wants to bring real competition to the team and bring a good ethos to everything and that is perfect for me, so I said I would come on board.

“I have played with Lee back in his Batley days so I know what he is like, he said he wants to build a team that is going to be competitive in every game.”

Dewsbury coach Lee Greenwood added: “Alex could be a great signing for us, he knows this is a good opportunity to try get back to his best.

“After helping Jamaica qualify for the 2021 World Cup, hopefully his love for the game has returned. When Alex is enjoying his rugby, he can be one of the best wingers at this level.”
