London have signed full-back Olly Ashall-Bott from Widnes on a two-year deal.

The 21-year-old made his Super League debut in the 2018 season, playing 15 games for the Vikings in total.

Ashall-Bott said: “I am very excited to be signing for London and would like to thank Danny Ward for giving me the chance to continue playing full-time rugby league.

“I cannot wait to get started and meet the boys and staff plus being a part of something that from the outside has looked very special.

“I have to say a huge thankyou to everyone involved with Widnes Vikings for everything they have done for me as I would not be where I am today without them.

“I must also give a special thanks to the fans at Widnes as they are the heartbeat of what is a tremendous club to play for.”

Broncos coach Danny Ward added: “Olly burst onto the scene in Super League with Widnes and is an exciting player to watch.

“I have worked with him previously with England Youth and have kept an eye on him ever since.

“He is a lively full-back with a decent bit of gas, we are excited about what he’ll bring to the Broncos next season.”
