BULLS SIGN SUPER LEAGUE WINGER FOR 2020
WE are delighted to announce Super League winger Greg Johnson will be a Bull in 2020 – having signed from Salford Red Devils on a one- year deal!
The 29-year-old made his top-flight debut at Wakefield Trinity under John Kear, prior to a stint at the Fox’s Biscuits Stadium, where he scored an impressive 18 tries in 28 appearances.
A Jamaican international, Johnson spent six years as a ‘Red Devil’ and scored 50 tries for the Manchester-based outfit.
The Huddersfield-born talent has spoken of his delight at reuniting with Bradford boss Kear - as he aims to reinvent himself in the red, amber and black.
“I am happy to have signed, I have worked with John before and know him well, I am looking forward to getting started and rip into the new season,” said Johnson.
“I had six good years at Salford but the time was right to leave, I have got to get back on the field week in, week out and reinvent myself.
“I like dancing on the pitch! I am a runner so hopefully that will result in a lot of tries this year.
“The facilities here are really good at Championship level, they are better than most Super League facilities, you have everything you need as a player.
“Bradford is a massive club that has had its ups and downs but coming into the Championship is a new challenge for me and I am looking forward to it.”
Johnson can re-establish himself as one of the country’s top wingers according to Kear, who he believes ‘ticks all the boxes’.
“I am absolutely delighted, Greg is a high quality player – he has had a very good Super League career and we are certain he will re-establish himself as one of the country’s top wingers,” said Kear.
“I coached him at Wakefield and Batley and know him well and this is a great opportunity for him to seize and for us to seize in having a top quality winger in our ranks.
“He is really good at bringing the ball out, he works hard, he’s quick and his footwork is sensational – he is a good defender, he ticks all the boxes you need to tick as a winger and I am delighted he is on board.”
