Bears re-sign more Midlanders
Bears re-sign two more Midlanders
The club is pleased to announce the signing of two more local midlands players to the squad for 2017. Tom Tsang commented below on the re-signings.
Jason Bass- Utility back
Jason joined us in our first season in League 1, from the RFL Midlands Academy. He made an immediate impact, turning in a number of eye catching performances and was that year named Young Player of the Season. In 2016, Jason carried on where he left off and was a regular starter for us in the backline, as well as being an integral part of a successful England Universities side. We are really pleased to have re-signed Jason and he joins a growing number of locally produced players who we have given an opportunity at this level. With his speed, footwork and ability to break tackles, he will continue to be a player to look out for in 2017.
Hayden Freeman- Wing
Hayden had a solid debut season in League 1, scoring in half of the games he played in. For a winger he is very strong, a good athlete and a natural finisher. I am really pleased he has stayed for a second season as I feel we can work with Hayden to really improve his game now he has a year under his belt at this level. I am sure Hayden will work hard through the pre-season as he is more than capable of claiming and keeping a starting shirt in our side.
