A QUARTET of academy starlets have signed contract extensions with the Bradford Bulls - taking them into the new season.

Will Adams, Isaac Coleman, Daniel McGrath and Layton Heywood will all feature in the revamped academy structure this term, having seen their 2020 campaigns wrecked by the Coronavirus pandemic.

2021 sees the return of the under-19s, replacing last year's under-18s group - meaning the four youngsters are once again eligible to appear in the red, amber and black.

Leigh Beattie's side were one of the first to return to training back in November.

Head of youth Beattie said: "It is a pleasure to retain Will, Isaac, Daniel and Layton - all of who have come through the club's scholarship system to get to this stage.

"Our focus has always been developing from within our own academy set-up and thanks to the support from Bullbuilder year on year we are able to do so.

"As soon as it is safe to do so, we will return to training and focus on developing these young men along with the rest of the lads to give them the best chance when the action returns on the field."
