Bradford have handed contracts to six players from last season’s Under 16’s scholarship squad.
Stand-off Josh Greenwood-McDonald, centre Jacob Farrell, loose forward Isaac Pollard, forward Sam Bates, half-back Nick Gomersall and winger Todd Binns have all impressed enough to earn deals.
Bulls Head of Youth Paul Medley said: “I’d like to thank the players for their patience in what has been a difficult situation. Until the future of the club was ratified by the RFL we were not in a position to offer contracts but they all held back until we were able to do so.
“These signings are further proof that the Bulls are back in business and continuing to develop players through their Scholarship and Academy systems.
“All six have shown throughout the season that they have what it takes to warrant a contract with the Bulls and they will all be given every opportunity to make a successful career in Rugby League.”
