Young Bronco joins Bears
Owen Jones has signed from London Broncos under 19s
Head coach Tom Tsang spoke of the signing:
Owen joined us last year on loan from London Broncos and played a couple of matches in the League one shield. He is a Midlands based player coming from Shropshire and was a part of the Midlands Hurricanes Academy set up. He can play loose forward and second row - he runs good lines in attack and is a confident defender. Having played a couple of league one matches for us last year I am looking forward to working with Owen to becoming a regular in our matchday squad.
"I'm very happy to be signing with the bears for next season. With them being the only professional club in the midlands, and myself being a Midlander makes it extra special to be representing my region and helping grow the sport in the area.
I'm looking forward to getting stuck in to pre-season with the lads and the first game of season.
Having spent some time on loan at the end of last season, I've seen how good the players and staff are and I think the club has the potential to be pushing on in to the top half of the table. Hopefully I can add something different to help achieve that this season. Personally I'm hoping to get some good game time and more experience playing 1st team football."
