Wellington Albert joins Keighley

Keighley have signed Papua New Guinea international Wellington Albert for the 2021 season.

The 26-year-old moved over to the UK in 2018 with Widnes before enjoying spells with Leeds and Featherstone. He has earned seven caps for Papua New Guinea.

Albert said: “I’m really looking forward to a new opportunity with Keighley.

“I can’t wait to meet up with the boys now, it has been seven or eight months since I last got to meet up with team-mates and train, and it is really exciting for me.

“There are some really good players at the club already, so I’m looking forward to getting into training and help build some confidence and then win some games once we get into the new season.

“I didn’t really know much about Keighley, but last year before lockdown I met a few of the boys when I played against them in a couple of training matches with Featherstone.

“But my agent called me around a month ago to inform me of Keighley’s interest and ask me what I thought about joining the club.

“I am just looking forward now to getting back out and playing some footy, and I’m really looking forward to doing that with Keighley and helping the club move up the divisions into the Championship.”
