BRADFORD Bulls have announced that young forward Bradley Ho has penned a new two-year deal.

The 20-year-old impressed for the reserves in 2020, earning a first team deal for 2021 in the process.

Following a productive loan spell at Coventry Bears, Ho made his first team bow against Swinton Lions before also featuring against Toulouse Olympique.

The rising star believes he felt the full benefit of his loan spell with the Midlands outfit - admitting he is looking forward to further opportunities in the red, amber and black.

"I am really happy to be staying and I am looking forward to kicking on next year and building on this season," said Ho.

"Having the time on loan at Coventry really helped and I appreciate all they did for me in developing and playing, with Covid disrupting the last two years.

"To make my Bradford debut was a special moment and I am looking forward to having a good pre-season and getting more opportunities next year."

Bradford boss John Kear added: "The loan spell he had at Coventry Bears really brought him on, because that was one of the frustrations of Covid, finding game time for players we felt had great potential.

"Brad is a big fella who we think has got a great future in the middle unit, he got that game time and I thank Coventry for that.

"While he was there, he grew up by playing against men.

"That gave us great confidence that in the next two years he will certainly develop.

"There may be different strategies for his development but he will come into contention for first team football."
