Kyran Johnson signs up to Oldham

Kyran Johnson has penned a two-year deal with Oldham.

The full-back or winger will remain at the Vestacare Stadium until at least the end of the 2020 campaign.

Johnson had other offer from Championship and League 1 clubs but he has turned them now to stay at Oldham.

On his new deal, Johnson commented: “I can relax now and start to think about the new season.

“I’m a Yorkshire lad and I had only ever played previously for Featherstone, but last season everybody at Oldham made me and my family as welcome as anybody could possibly do.

“Oldham became my second home and for a Yorkshire lad to say that, it really means something.

“I’m looking forward to getting back on the field and pushing for promotion.

“I turned down Championship offers, but I hope to be there in 2020, playing for the Roughyeds against the clubs that approached me.”

The 24-year-old scored five tries in 16 appearance for the Roughyeds last season.
