Matty Dawson-Jones has signed a new one-year deal with Bradford.

Dawson-Jones, 29, joined the Bulls prior to the start of the 2020 season, scoring a brace on debut against London Broncos.

The outside back has also featured at St Helens, Leigh and Hull FC.

He said: “I am made up to be staying – it was an easy decision. John is a big pull in me staying as he was me coming to the club, knowing what he is as a coach and although I haven’t worked with him long I have enjoyed working under him so far and am looking forward to 2021.

“It was a pretty easy transition coming into the club, I knew some of the boys the likes of Jordan Lilley I had played with before so they helped me integrate into the team.

“It has been a frustrating year. I thought I started really well, hit the ground running and to have this sprung on us is frustrating but we have been training hard at home so we can kick on next year and John has recruited well.

“I am looking forward to playing with Broughie and [Aaron] Murphy, I have played with them both before and they are both top quality Super League players.

“It is an exciting prospect just being around players like that, it makes everyone pick their game up.

“We are ready to go and train hard and ready to hit the ground running – we will go into pre-season fitter than ever before hopefully that’ll lead into being stronger and battle for promotion in 2021.”
