Bulls Second Row Forward Elliott Whitehead has pledged his future to the club by agreeing a new five year contract that will keep him at Odsal until the end of the 2016 season.
His previous deal had another year to run but the club has rewarded him for the progress he has made over the past couple of years and Coach Mick Potter feels he will continue to improve over the length of his contract.
“Elliott will continue to improve, of that I have no doubt. He has come on in leaps and bounds over the past couple of years and his now firmly established in the side.
It is also a reflection of the Cub’s ambition for the future in its determination to hold onto the highly regarded young players at the club. It also shows the Bulls policy of bringing those young players into the First Team environment is reaping its rewards.”
Elliott Whitehead is delighted to be extending his stay at Odsal:
“I am a Bradford player through and through and I love being at the club; everyone there is awesome with me.”
“The club have talked about building for the future and me signing on for another few years is part of that. I’m more than happy to stay because I believe we’re moving forward as a club and I feel that we’ve improved a lot this year and are doing much better than we did last season.”
“There are a lot of very good young players here like Danny Addy, Tom Burgess and John Bateman. They’ve showed what they’re capable of doing and hopefully more of the boys can sign up for the long-term.”
“It’s great to have my future secured and now I can just concentrate on my rugby.”
