Hunslet have snared Jake Sweeting for the 2023 Betfred League One season.

The halfback or fullback, 22, who spent part of the last campaign on loan with the Parksiders from Dewsbury Rams before agreeing terms, has put pen to paper on a one-year deal.

The now-permanent Parksider said: “I’m really excited to be spending a full season now with Hunslet, and to show the fans what I and the team can do next year with, hopefully, a real big push for promotion.

“Hunslet’s a very good team and Rugby League club and I’m aiming to make a big contribution and help with the side’s continuing improvement.”

Head coach Alan Kilshaw said: “We are delighted to make Jake a permanent signing. He has a really good kicking game and is an outstanding goalkicker.

“We will see the best of him in a Hunslet shirt next season, playing in a settled role and in a settled side. Jake’s a good age and has plenty of development in him. He’s a quality addition to the club – and we have plenty more exciting signings to announce, and for everyone to get behind, in the next few weeks.”
