RYAN RE-SIGNS A TWO YEAR CONTRACT EXTENSION
Bradford Bulls are delighted to announce the re-signing of Ethan Ryan on a two-year contract extension.
Ryan, sponsored by The Goodwin Family, made 23 appearances for the Bulls this year, scoring 17 tries in the process, some in emphatic style.
The try scoring sensation signed with the club at the tender age of 16, as he developed his craft working his way through the demanding Bradford academy system.
The winger finally made his professional debut against London Broncos in 2016, where he broke the whitewash for his first of many tries in the red, amber and black strip.
“It’s really good to sign for another two years. With the club going down it is all about getting a good squad together and coming straight back up,” said Ryan.
“Bradford is all I have ever known professionally and it is something that is really close to my heart; it is my team. To stay here for another two years is making it very important for me to help get the club back to where it should be. I have been here since I was 16.”
Ryan is the 14th player to commit his future to the Bulls since the conclusion of the 2017 season, as the crucial recruitment process is well underway for 2018.
“There are a lot of people that have experienced the highs of Super League in the side. Those boys will play a big role in next season as they help us to push on and create a strong team to build around. It is going to be really good, we will put on a show and score a lot of points.
“I feel like we will stand a really good chance with the people that we have kept on so it has made my decision to stay at the club a lot easier. Hopefully now we can get into this league, kick on and try to win all of our games.
“Now that we have a fresh start we have a year where we can get a full pre-season in and attack the year, get straight back up, recruit even stronger, have a good year in the championship and get back into Super League. That is the overall aim.”
