Bears sign Derby product Josh Jackson

 We are delighted to announce the signing of young Josh Jackson who is a locally based player also involved with the Midlands Hurricanes Academy in Loughborough.

Tom Tsang commented:

 Josh, who hails from Derbyshire, trained with us through the second half of the 2017 season and is a key member of our Midlands Hurricanes academy squad.

Josh has shown fantastic attitude throughout his time with us and as a 17 year old, he has a tonne of potential that we want to assist in unlocking. 

Josh also attended our pre-season trials and again showed he has the mentality to compete at League 1 level - something we felt deserved rewarding. 

I am looking forward to working with Josh and can see him being a Bear for a long time, provided he keeps working hard and keeps learning.

 Josh Jackson commented:

 “I have only been playing Rugby League for 4 years and feel I have really developed in this time, playing for the Midlands Hurricanes and Derby City at College and Open Age levels respectively. I feel I am now ready for the challenge of training with Coventry and hoping to break into the League 1 side. To be offered a place in the only professional team in the Midlands is a great honour and with a top set up around me I hope I can be a good contribution to the team and hopefully get some quality game time. I hope to improve my game knowledge by playing and training a long side some quality experienced players which will hopefully set me up for a long future in rugby league.”
