BILLY Jowitt has signed a new two-year deal with Bulls.

The 20-year-old made his competitive first team debut for Bradford against Sheffield in April, where he laid on a try for Joe Brown.

Jowitt, who can play either at full back, in the halves or at hooker, went on to feature against Halifax, Toulouse and Widnes throughout the club’s Championship campaign.

The youngster is eager to build on his debut year - and is targeting further run outs for the club.

“I am really happy and excited to be staying for another two years with a great set of lads and coaching staff, ready to build on last year,” said Jowitt.

“To make my debut was a mixture of emotions, there were both nerves and excitement and it is a feeling I will never forget. Even without fans the whole feel of the occasion was immense.

“Next year I really want to become a more regular player throughout the season and show people what I’m about and what I can do on a consistent basis.

“To hear that the fans were impressed and happy with my performances after such a short time is encouraging and a boost going into next year. I just cannot wait to kick on again next season.”

Bradford boss John Kear praised Jowitt’s attitude - and believes he will improve even further next year.

“Billy is a great young player with bags of potential and he has a really fearless attitude,” said Kear.

“We are delighted to keep him as we feel he is improving as we invest more and more in his development.

“He has played a few games this year and if he plays a few more next year it will show he is developing as a player and I would be absolutely delighted.”
