“I’m really please to have signed a new contract with the club,” said Lumb.

“Making my professional debut for the Bulls was a big milestone and signing a new deal is the next chapter of my career and I’m really looking forward to it.”

Bulls managing director Steve Ferres said: “We are delighted to have secured the services of Joe for another three years.
