Sykes signs new Bradford deal

Paul Sykes has signed a new three year contract with Bradford which will keep him at the club until the end of 2013.

Sykes, 28, made his debut for the Bulls in 1999 before leaving to join London Broncos in 2002, returning to Odsal for the 2008 season.

He said: “I’m really happy here and I’m delighted to get a new contract.  I was here before and it’s been three years now since I came back from Harlequins. It’s a good club and a good set-up. We don’t know who the coach will be next year but we’ve got a great bunch of lads and I want to stay with this club and win things here.”

Sykes has scored 31 tries in 83 appearances for the Bulls, as well as kicking 45 goals and two drop goals.

Bradford Chairman Peter Hood said: “I’m absolutely delighted he’s put pen to paper and signed a three-year deal with the club. He’s home-grown talent, which is particularly important nowadays, and he’s an extremely versatile and important member of the first of the first team. Any coach would be happy to have him in their squad.”
