John Kear excited about young talent at Bradford as Ebon Scurr re-signs

Young front-rower Ebon Scurr has signed a new one-year deal at Bradford.

Scurr, 20, was an ever-present in John Kear’s side prior to the season being cancelled and came through the club’s academy.

He said: “Having spoken to John and seeing his plans for the future I wanted to be a part of it – he is the coach I want to play under.

“He has put a lot of faith in me and the other younger lads and it is great to have that trust put in you.”

Scurr made his first team debut back in 2019, against Barrow in the 1895 Cup.

Kear added: “I am really pleased – it is very important that we strengthen our existing squad but equally as important to retain the younger players who we feel have big futures.

“In the early stages of this year Ebon demonstrated he has a big future but it was not a surprise to me how well he played, he did it week in, week out for the Academy.

“It was just a matter of if he could adjust to the physicality of week in, week out Championship rugby but anyone who watched him saw he did.

“We are really pleased to have a good player who will build into a very good one – he seized his opportunity and took it with both hands it is very exciting times for all at the club.”
