BULLS have announced the signing of former Hull FC and Castleford Tigers flyer Jack Sanderson on a one-year deal.

The 22-year-old was at Hull FC before going on to feature for Daryl Powell's Castleford Tigers, where he made three Super League appearances, scoring one try.

Sanderson - who stands tall at 6ft 2ins - can feature in any position along the back line, adding further strength in depth for John Kear in 2021.

The new recruit admits he wants to cement his place as a Bradford player for years to come - having been 'sold' on the move by the club's aspirations.

"I am really happy to be here, already after the first session I felt welcomed by all the players and staff and having spoken to John about the aspirations of the club it really sold the move to me," said Sanderson.

"I want to be a part of Bradford’s journey and cement my place in the team here, it has been a few years since I have strung some regular games together and I want to be able to help the club get back into Super League.

"I can bring a lot of pace on the edges and can cover anywhere from 1 to 5. I am a confident player and that will come with a run of games in the side.

"It will be good to finally get out in front of the Bradford fans so they can see what I can do in person."

The Bradford boss has spoken of his long-term admiration for Sanderson - insisting his technical attributes, as well as his attitude, further bolsters his roster.

"I am absolutely delighted – Jack is a player who spent time at Doncaster and has also got Super League experience with Hull FC and Castleford and I always thought he was pretty good," said Kear.

"When we spoke to Jack and his agent I jumped at the chance to bring him in – I know full well he sees this one-year deal as an opportunity to earn a longer-term stay.

"He’s big and fast. Having done my due diligence on him and speaking to people within the game, everyone has spoken of his positive attitude and how well he applies himself.

"He can play 1-5 and can also kick goals, so there is a number of plus points with bringing in a player like Jack – he adds further competition for a starting jersey."
