Wheeldon returns to Sheffield on two year deal

Posted by

Sheffield Eagles have confirmed the signing of forward Scott Wheeldon on a two year deal from Featherstone Rovers.

Wheeldon previously spent two seasons in Sheffield in 2016 and 2017 and has made almost 300 appearances over a 13 year career in the game.

“I am happy to be back,” he told the Eagles’ club website. “I enjoyed my time with the Eagles when I was here before. Obviously I’ve spent a couple of years elsewhere then there was an opportunity to come back.

“I spoke to Tubbs (Mark Aston), he likes me as a player and a person so I’m more than happy to come on board. He has put a bit of trust in me with the age that I am at.

“He has seen videos of me playing and when he spoke to me, he says I’ve not got much slower! It’s nice he’s put that trust into me and I’ll be looking to repay that on the field.”
