The Dons have completed the signing of winger Josh Rickett for the 2020 campaign.

The 22-year-old came through the youth ranks at Odsal, making his professional debut at the end of 2016.

Rickett is a versatile outside back, meaning he is also capable of playing in the centres or at full-back.

He said: “I’m very grateful to Richard Horne and Carl Hall for giving me the opportunity to join the club.

“After seeing some of my friends doing well here and how much they have progressed I feel this the best move for me going forward.

“I’m looking forward to getting started and meeting all of the lads, as well as having Rich as my coach to help me work on all aspects on my game.”

Head coach Richard Horne said: “I’m really pleased to have Josh joining us for next season, his attributes fit perfectly in to what we were looking for.

“He is a strong, quick winger who knows his way to the try-line, and I believe he will add to our squad significantly.

“Josh impressed coming through the ranks at Bradford and hopefully he can continue to improve while at the Dons.”
