He said: “It was an easy decision for me to sign with Keighley this season.

“It was clear from speaking with Rhys Lovegrove and Andrew Henderson that the club had high expectations of success for the season with promotion to the Championship. I wanted to be a part of that.

“After playing most of my rugby league at Newcastle Thunder and Northumbria University, I am looking forward to starting a new challenge and a new chapter in my career down at Cougar Park.

“I have already been made to fell at home at Keighley.

“The squad has a great energy about it with a mix of young talent and some great experienced players.

“It’s a very exciting time to be involved with the club as the players, coaches, and staff behind the scenes are all of the highest quality.
