Jordan Lilley wants to take Bradford back to Super League after signing new deal

Jordan Lilley says he wants to help take Bradford back to Super League after signing a new two-year deal with the club.

The 25-year-old initially joined Bradford on loan in 2018 after coming through the ranks at Leeds, and has gone on to play 57 games for the Bulls.

Jordan Lilley says he wants to help take Bradford back to Super League after signing a new two-year deal with the club.

Lilley said: “It is a big relief to get it over the line – it is good to put pen to paper, there were hurdles in the way but we managed to get there in the end and it is brilliant to be staying.

“I am regaining my confidence and that is one of the reasons why I signed again, I feel like this year especially I am having one of the best years of my career.

“We are building a really good team for next year, with the likes of Broughie (Danny Brough) staying and the players we have got coming in, it is exciting times for this club.

“I have made no secret of the fact I want to go up with Bradford, I want to take them back up to Super League and get 15/20,000 people back inside Odsal – that is a dream of mine and now I have two years to build that.”

Bradford coach John Kear said: “Jordan has been great ever since he came in, you can see him developing into a quality half-back, your halves, hookers, full backs – they’re the spine, you need to trust your spine I trust Jordan completely.

“He is tremendous and he is only going to get better, signing Jordan up for another two years is a big positive for the club and supporters.

“One of the reasons we were so keen to keep him was he broke his ribs, pretty much played straight after and you think that is a team man, Jordan Lilley is a team man. You cannot have enough of those I am absolutely delighted to get him over the line.

“There have been some exciting announcements already but there are some good ones coming up – people can look forward to an interesting 2022 but we have work to do in 2021 as well.”
