Hunslet RLFC are delighted to announce the signing of front-row forward Zach Braham on a one-year contract.

Zach 23, joined the Parksiders back in June from Doncaster and established himself as a firm fans favourite following a string of solid performances.

Gary Thornton was delighted with the capture of the young forward “Zach came into our squad late on last season, and made an immediate impact with his hard running and tackling style, and became an instant fans favourite.

“Unfortunately his year was cut short due to injury, and we missed him for the back end of the season.

“He is a powerful young prop, who will develop and improve the more he plays, and we definitely missed his aggressive go-forward, quick play the ball, and presence on the field at the back end of the year.

“Once he gets his injury issues resolved, I’m confident he will kick on next season and come back even better.

“I’m delighted he has agreed to sign for another season, and I’m looking forward to working with him, and to him becoming an important member of our group.”

Zach was delighted to be extending his stay at the South Leeds Stadium “I’m absolutely over the moon to be offered another year at Hunslet.

“When Gary and Darren pulled me in regarding next year I was buzzing.

“I’ve not had much luck with injury this year which is something that’s really got me down. I know I have a lot more to offer and a lot more in store for the fans and the club.

“I can’t wait to get ripped into pre-season and the tough stuff with the boys and come back fitter and stronger than I’ve ever been.

“Hunslet is a massive club and I think we will have no problem in promotion next year.

“The club is heading in the right direction and I couldn’t ask to be a part of a better club.

“The boys are class, the staff are outstanding and the fans are exceptional. Roll on next season”
